Police searching for man accused of leaving Omaha crash that killed his wife

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Police are looking for the man accused of leaving the scene of the crash that killed his wife.

A Douglas County judge issued an arrest warrant on Monday for 39-year-old Pierre Brayman.

He is charged with leaving the scene of a crash resulting in death on April 26 near Carter Lake in Omaha.

An affidavit shows 39-year-old Tiffany Brayman died after being thrown from a Ford F-150 that rolled into a tree line.

Police found multiple Fireball shooters inside and around the truck.

They also found a cellphone near Tiffany with a background image of her husband.

Bystanders came to help, and they told police that a man had run from the crash.

Witnesses later picked out Pierre Brayman in a photo lineup, according to the affidavit.

Brayman’s ex-wife also spoke with police. She said her ex-husband appeared on her doorstep in torn clothes and without shoes that same day.

An investigator says Brayman told his ex that he’d been in a crash before fleeing to Council Bluffs.

Brayman’s license has been revoked since 2020, police said, and he was convicted of leaving a different crash in 2021.

Police think a lack of seat belts and alcohol were factors in the crash.
