OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A 30-year-old motorcyclist died from injuries following a crash early Saturday, according to Omaha Police.

At 1:13 a.m., officers were dispatched to the area of I-80 E and 108th St where investigation revealed a 2018 CSC SG250 motorcycle was eastbound on the I, L, Q ramp to I-80 when it was struck from behind by a Toyota Camry driven by Miguel Garcia-Garcia, 31.

The motorcycle, driven by 30-year-old Saw Htoo, was pushed approximately 100 ft before both vehicles stopped.
