A woman was taken to the hospital after her vehicle collided with a tree on Carter Lake Boulevard Friday morning. Police have released her identity and say she is expected to survive.
Twenty-five-year-old Tonisha Flowers reportedly struck an Omaha Housing Authority vehicle at 24th and Sprague just before 8:00. She then left the scene, according to police. Moments later, fire and rescue crews were sent to Carter Lake where police found a vehicle had collided with a tree.
The vehicle struck a tree which caused it to spin clockwise and strike a 2nd tree.
Flowers was cited for leaving the scene of an accident, no insurance and improper display of plates.
She suffered a possible concussion and neck injury as a result of the crash.
