Police Captain Ben Kopsa tells KLIN News police responded to reports of a rollover accident on West Fletcher between NW 13th and NW 20th St around 2:15AM Friday.
“Officers located two passengers who had been ejected from the vehicle, one of whom was pinned underneath the vehicle” says Kopsa. “The passenger who was pinned, a (31) year old male, was pronounced declared deceased at the scene by Lincoln Fire and Rescue.”
The deceased victim is identified as 31 year-old Stephen Hundley of Falls City.
The other victim was taken to a hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
Police believe the vehicle, and SUV, was going westbound on Fletcher when it crossed the curbed median and rolled across the eastbound lane.
Kopsa says an investigation into the incident is ongoing and that West Fletcher will be closed both ways between NW 13th and NW 20th St through the morning rush hour.
