OMAHA, NE – The Nebraska State Patrol said a driver trying to elude a state trooper crashed on Interstate 680 Thursday morning.
According to KETV, the trooper attempted a traffic stop on the driver of a Toyota Sienna who was seen speeding at about 90 miles an hour while headed south on I-680 at about 8:15 a.m.
