A man is serious condition after being shot while trying to take down the license plate of a driver fleeing a hit and run crash.

It happened just off L and South Streets around 1 o'clock this morning. Police tell WOWT Six News that a white vehicle was heading easy when it was hit by a pickup that failed to stop at a red light.

The truck then took off, and another SUV started to follow the driver to get the license plate number. They were following too closely and ended up rear-ending the pick up fleeing the scene.

The driver of the truck then fired rounds at the driver of the SUV, hitting him. He was taken to Nebraska Medical Center in serious condition.

No word on arrests yet, we will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
