Man involved in Omaha traffic crash might have died from heat exhaustion

48 year old Paul Tamayo of Council Bluffs was driving near 67th and West Center Road in Omaha yesterday afternoon when he crashed into a construction zone and hit a dirt pile. Witnesses say Tamayo then got out of his vehicle and walked about a half mile into a field where he collapsed.

Paramedics say his body temperature was 110-degrees. He was rushed to a hospital and later died.

An autopsy has been ordered to determine the cause of death.
