A person was killed Wednesday in a one-vehicle crash on Interstate 480 in Omaha that snarled traffic, police said.
The crash occurred at 10:45 a.m. near Woolworth Avenue, Officer Michael Pecha said. Witnesses told police that a vehicle crashed through a chain-link fence on Woolworth Avenue and landed on the I-480 median.
I-480 remained closed in both directions at 12:50 p.m. The closure extends southbound on U.S. Highway 75 at Hamilton Street to westbound Interstate 80.
