Two dead, many pedestrians injured in fatal accident on O . Street

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) – Two people have died and several others were taken to Lincoln Hospital following an overnight O Street crash at the Americruise event.

According to a press release from Lincoln Police, the crash occurred at 52nd and O Street around 10:47 p.m. Sunday.

The statement said that a black Ford Taurus was traveling west on O Street when it collided with a white Toyota Corolla turning east.

After the initial collision, both vehicles went up the sidewalk north of O Street, west of N. 52, hitting multiple people watching the event, the LPD said. The Ford initially ran over the head, clamping the two victims. Eyewitnesses worked to move the victim’s vehicle.

One victim is currently in a critical condition while the others have non-life threatening injuries.

The LPD said Monday morning 20 bystanders were injured.

The LPD said a 20-year-old Lincoln woman and a 22-year-old Lincoln woman, the driver and passenger of the Toyota Corolla, died in the crash. The driver and sole occupant of the Ford, an 18-year-old Omaha man, was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

According to the LPD, no cars participated in the Americruise event.

In a press release Monday, Bryan Medical Center said staff members cared for 10 people injured in the crash, including seven in Bryan West and three in Bryan East. Of those ten, one is in critical condition, and the other is in serious condition. Eight patients were treated and discharged.

The LPD says it expects changes as a result of the incident.

“We will be out there, we will take action and hopefully implement some new policy,” said LPD Director Teresa Ewins.
