OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Omaha police say one person is dead after a crash involving four vehicles including a school bus on I-680 near 72nd Street around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.
A police spokesperson tells 3 News Now that the school bus driver went to Immanuel with minor injures and a person in another car died.
Officers were called to I-680 just west of 72nd after reports of a four-car personal injury crash.
A 2006 Buick was following a white 2009 Audio in the left lane going eastbound. The Buick passed the Audi in the right lane and moved back over to the left lane.
A press release from OPD said the driver of the Buick struck the front of the Audi, causing both vehicles to spin out onto the grass median.
The Audi came to a halt in the median, while the Buick continued on to the westbound lanes of I-680.
The Buick was struck on the drivers side by a school bus going westbound.
Debris from the collision then hit a westbound 2018 Honda.
The driver of the Buick, identified as 47-year-old Bradley G. Uecker, was transported to Bergan Mercy by Omaha Fire Department medics where he was later pronounced dead.
Bus driver Komlavi A. N Danou, 34, went to Immanuel with minor injuries.
The occupants of the Audi and Honda were uninjured.
The only occupant on the bus at the time was the driver--no children were on board.
An autopsy for Uecker is scheduled for Thursday.
