A motorcycle rider is dead following a crash Tuesday morning near 24th and Pierce Streets in Omaha.
“A motorcycle was traveling northbound on 24th Street in the right-hand lane. A truck pulling a trailer in the left hand land and the dump truck pulled out an attempted to turn north on 24th Street.”
Omaha Police Sergeant Tony Guiterrez says the 29 year old motorcycle rider tried to avoid the incident but lost control.
“The motorcycle lost control trying to take evasive action and went into a slide and at that time was run over by the dump truck.”
Sgt. Guiterrez reminds all drivers this is motorcycle season and they are out and about.
“When motorcycles are out, look once, look twice. Presume there is a motorcycle there until you are sure they are not.”
