A 28-year-old Iowa man died, two others suffered injuries when two cars collided in northeast Lincoln Monday night.
The Lincoln Police Department reports Jacob Stewart of Altoona, Iowa died at the scene of the crash near 70th Street and Eldora Lane.
According to police, a northbound car driven by Stewart moved into a southbound lane, hitting a sport utility vehicle head-on. The driver of the SUV, 27-year-old Jessica Arias of Omaha, and her passenger, 35-year-old Angel Meza of Lincoln, have been hospitalized with what police describe as non-life-threatening injuries.
Arias told police she thought the car coming at her was turning left. When she realized it wasn’t turning, she attempted to avoid the crash, but was too late.
