OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A man is dead after being hit by at least one vehicle in north Omaha early Wednesday morning, police said.

Officers were called to the neighborhood just before 4:30 a.m. Wednesday, police said in a news release. Police said a witness saw the man, later identified as 31-year-old Edward Johnson, lying in the street and pulled over to call 911. As the witness was calling, a car ran over Johnson, the witness told investigators.

Johnson was taken by ambulance to an Omaha hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. The 24-year-old driver of the car that ran over Johnson was cited for driving during suspension and having no proof of insurance.
