Man pinned between cars during morning commute, in stable condition


OMAHA, Neb. (FOX 42 KPTM) -- One man was taken to the hospital after a crash this morning left him pinned between two cars.

Police were responding to another accident on 36th and L Streets that was blocking the right lane of L st, when a Hyundai Santa Fe, driven by Michael Beck, stopped due to the congestion. An incoming Toyota Camry, driven by Geu Nyinguut Geu, rear ended the Hyundai.

Beck and Geu both left their cars to check the damage when a Ford van, driven by Timothy Williams Sr., hit the Camry, causing the car to move forward and pin Beck in between the cars.

Beck was taken to Bergan Mercy by Omaha Fire medics. He suffered severe injuries to both legs and was taken into surgery. He is in critical but stable condition. The other two drivers were unharmed.

Police do not believe alcohol was a factor, but say the weather this morning made the roads icy.

The crash is still under investigation.
