       OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – An Iowa man who was working for an Omaha street crew when he was hit by a car earlier this week has died.
    Officials say 48-year-old Salvatore Fidone III, of Council Bluffs, Iowa, died Friday at Nebraska Medical Center from injuries he suffered when he was hit by a car Monday in southwest Omaha.
    Police say Fidone was standing on the driver’s side of a city truck as he and others prepared to fill potholes when a car driven by a 53-year-old Omaha man drifted from a northbound lane and struck him.
    No charges in the case have been filed, and the crash remains under police investigation.
