OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A driver died in the crash of his sport utility vehicle early Tuesday morning in north Omaha, police said.

Officers dispatched to the crash site a little before 2:40 a.m. found the wrecked SUV in the roadway.

It appeared the driver had overcorrected to the right after his westbound SUV struck the median, police said in a news release. The SUV then struck a retaining wall and came to rest back on the traffic lanes.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Police identified him as Michael Parker Sr., 47, who lived in Omaha.
