The Omaha Police Department continues to investigate a deadly accident that happened just before 1 a.m. Sunday morning along the southbound I-480 – JFK – I-80 split.
The victims have been identified as 32 year old Alvaro Contreras, 33 year old Homero Guerrero and 36 year old Alberto Longino-Maldonado, all of Omaha.
Police say a 2014 Chevy Cruse, driving by Contreras, was northbound in the southbound lanes of the JKF. That vehicle collided with a 2000 Chevy Impala nearly head on. Omaha medics declared all three men dead at the scene.
Investigators suspect alcohol use was a factor by both drivers.
Several other agencies, including the Nebraska State Patrol and the Nebraska Department of Roads assisted in the investigation and the roadway was close to traffic for about six hours.
