A 25-year-old woman suffered a neck injury Friday after she sped away from the scene of a traffic accident and struck two trees with her vehicle, Omaha police say.
Tonisha Flowers, driving a 1997 Chevrolet Lumina, collided with an Omaha Housing Authority vehicle at 24th and Sprague Streets at 8:12 a.m., said Sgt. Doug Klein.
At 8:40 a.m., officers responded to another accident involving Flowers at 12th Street East and Carter Boulevard.
Flowers lost control of the eastbound Lumina on Carter Boulevard, Klein said. The vehicle struck a tree, spun clockwise and then struck a second tree.
Flowers was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
She was ticketed on suspicion of leaving the scene of a property damage accident, no insurance and improper display of plates.
