About an hour and three miles apart, two pedestrians were struck late Friday by vehicles on South 24th Street, Omaha police said. One of the victims died.
The pedestrian who was killed was a man, and the vehicle was not there when police arrived.
A southbound vehicle struck the man in the curb lane of 24th Street at J Street about 10 p.m.
The pedestrian, whose name police had not released, was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center and pronounced dead.
The vehicle was a dark cream or light tan older-model Toyota or Honda Civic, police said. It was being driven by a man wearing a hat.
Police asked anyone who knows where the vehicle or driver is to call investigators at 402-444-5627.
At 9 p.m., a 1993 Honda Accord was northbound on 24th Street when it struck a pedestrian crossing perhaps from west to east at Jones Street. There is no crosswalk there, police said.
The pedestrian, Diana L. Rader, 46, of Omaha, suffered a collapsed lung, broken ribs and several bone fractures.
She was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center, where she had surgery early Saturday.
Neither speed nor alcohol was a factor, police said.
The driver was J. Trinidad Pedroza Jr., 18, of Omaha, police said. He was not injured.
