Rush Hour Crash Kills One Person

LINCOLN -- One person is dead, three others suffered non life-threatening injuries in a two-vehicle crash during rush hour Monday morning at 56th and Van Dorn.   KFOR News talked to Lincoln Police Officer Tim Abele at the scene, who said the car turned when traffic in the inside northbound lane stopped, leaving a gap for the car to turn.  About halfway through the turn, the truck hit the passenger side of the car in the outside lane.  All three people in the car and the driver of the pickup were taken to the hospital, with the front-seat passenger of the car later dying from injuries suffered in the crash.  The name of the victim isn't being released at this time and the crash is still under investigation.  The Lancaster County Attorney's Office has ordered an autopsy.  No citations have been issued.
