OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Five people were hurt Thursday evening in a crash just west of the South Omaha Veterans Memorial Bridge following a pursuit, according to Omaha Police officers at the scene.

The driver of a Cadillac and four people in a silver Murano were all injured at the crash at 13th Street and Missouri Avenue. The crash was reported around 5:30 p.m.
