OMAHA, NE – A woman charged in connection with a crash that killed two people in Omaha is now behind bars, according to a report in the Omaha World-Herald.
This is an update to a previous story.
38-year-old Chinyere Nwujua of Omaha allegedly failed to stop for a red light while driving her SUV at a high rate of speed last week on 90th Street, then collided with a pickup truck, splitting it in two.
Both people inside the pickup were killed.
Nwujua was treated at Creighton University Medical Center-Bergan Mercy and released Saturday night. She was subsequently arrested on suspicion of two counts of manslaughter and booked into the Douglas County Jail. Department of Motor Vehicle records show her driver’s license is suspended and she had been ticketed twice for driving with a suspended license.
