OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Police say a Fremont man was killed after his motorcycle crashed into a car in Omaha.
The motorcyclist was identified as 26-year-old Preston J. Turner. Omaha police say Turner was riding northbound in Omaha around 9:40 p.m. Sunday when his 2006 Kawasaki struck a southbound 2010 Lexus Sedan that was turning east.
Police say Turner was unable to avoid striking the Lexus. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Lexus was identified as 83-year-old William W. Hugh, of Omaha. Police say the crash remains under investigation.
At least 10 people have been hospitalized and others could be trapped after an explosion and partial building collapse Monday at an Omaha animal feed processing plant.
Interim Omaha Fire Chief Bernie Kanger said he's not sure how many workers could be trapped in the wreckage of the International Nutrition plant. The fire that followed the explosion around 10 a.m. has been extinguished, but firefighters gingerly searched the structure, fearing that more debris could rain down.
