Omaha police say the driver who caused an accident by driving east in the westbound lanes of L Street Sunday morning will be tested for the presence of drugs or alcohol in his system.

The crash occurred at 54th and L Streets shortly after 1 a.m. Prior to the collision, witnesses were calling 911 operators to report an SUV driving the wrong way on L Street.

The driver of the van told officers he had nowhere to go to avoid the collision. To add insult to injury, the driver of the van is a traveling mechanic who was to drive to St. Joseph, Missouri for a job Sunday morning.

The driver of the SUV was taken to the trauma center in serious condition.
