OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — One person is dead and two others are seriously injured after a pre-dawn crash in Omaha.

The two-vehicle accident happened just before 3:30 a.m. Tuesday at 120th and Blondo streets. Police found newspapers scattered at the site and believe one of the vehicles was delivering the newspapers.

Police say a northbound Buick LeSabre was struck by a westbound Toyota Camry. A passenger in the Buick, 37-year-old Jamie Novak of Prague, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident prompted a five-hour shutdown of the intersection.
