One Dead, Two Critical After Car Goes Off Overpass In Omaha

One person is dead and two others are in critical condition after a car fell nearly 40-feet from an interstate overpass in Omaha. It happened late Thursday morning. Police say the car was eastbound on the Interstate 480 overpass just north of 30th street when the driver lost control and the car went over the safety rail.

Police say the car landed on a patch of grass and rolled onto a shoulder of US Highway 75. Two other people in the car are in serious condition. An Omaha police sergeant says the driver may have been driving too fast.
