Two Seriously Injured In Abbott Drive Crash

A man and woman were seriously injured in a one vehicle crash near downtown Wednesday afternoon. Police were called to Abbott and Gallup Drive around 1:30.

Investigators say a 2002 Mercury Cougar was westbound on Abbott at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control, over-corrected and left the road on the north side.  

The car struck a street light and a traffic signal before coming to rest in a ditch.  The driver, 41 year old Erin Odoherty of LaVista suffered a serious back injury.  Her passenger, 37 year old Kelly Evans of Omaha is being treated for a serious head laceration. 

Police say speed is a primary factor in the crash.
