OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Police say one person was killed Tuesday in a rollover crash in western Omaha that happened around 11:30 a.m. on West Dodge Road at 192nd Street.

Omaha Fire Department Medics attempted CPR without success and pronounced the victim dead. The victim was identified as 55-year-old Martin P. Robinson. Police say neither excessive speed or alcohol use appear to be contributing factors in the crash.

OPD says that a 2018 Chevy Trax was eastbound on W. Dodge Road. Witnesses said the vehicle drifted off the roadway and struck a pole. The force of the crash spun the vehicle out and it caught fire. Witnesses were able to pull the driver, who was the sole occupant, out before the vehicle became fully engulfed.

The eastbound lanes of W. Dodge Expressway was closed for approximately 30 minutes until the fire was extinguished and rescue equipment could be removed.
