Omaha woman dies in Douglas County Accident

A Nebraska woman was killed in a head-on accident Tuesday afternoon in Douglas County. Omaha Police Sgt. Joe Collins says the department’s Accident Investigation Squad, Nebraska State Patrol and the Nebraska Department of Roads responded to the accident.

Sgt. Collins says an eastbound 2003 Honda Civic 4 door crossed the center median and collided nearly head on with a west bound 1998 Buick Park Avenue.

The driver of the Honda was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Buick was transported via Life Net Helicopter to University Nebraska Medical Center for Treatment of extremely serious life threatening injuries. That driver is identified as 69 year old Judy Paulsen of Omaha.

Investigators believe a medical condition with the driver of the Honda may have caused the accident.
