OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A 65-year-old man died Saturday evening after a crash on an I-80 westbound exit ramp, according to Omaha Police.
Around 7:45 p.m., officers were called to the exit ramp from I-80 westbound to 72nd St for a hit and run accident.
The investigation found that a Jeep clipped the corner of a Ford Explorer while both drivers were westbound on the exit ramp. This caused the Explorer to spin out and come to a rest on the shoulder.
Police say that the Jeep, initially reported as a run vehicle, hadn't fled but left the ramp and hit a tree.
The driver of the Jeep, 65-year-old Kevin Lafferty, died at the scene.
The investigation is ongoing.
