OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A ride-share driver and his passenger were killed in a crash in northeast Omaha, police said.
The crash happened at 24th and Lake streets shortly after 1 p.m. Monday when a speeding SUV ran a red light and hit a car being used for a Z-Trip ride, police said in a news release.
Investigators say the Z-Trip passenger, Laron Imani, 60, of Omaha, was unrestrained in the back seat and died at the scene. The Z-Trip driver, Terrell Lindsey, 49, of Omaha, was taken to a hospital and died shortly after arrival, police said.
The driver of the SUV, 43-year-old Chaz Booker, was hospitalized with a head injury but is expected to survive, police said. Officials say he will face charges in the fatal crash once he’s released from the hospital.
