OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Omaha Police have identified the person in the fatal crash out west Tuesday morning.

Police identified 55-year-old Martin Robinson as the driver of a 2018 Chevy Trax in the rollover crash. Robinson was pronounced dead after Omaha Fire medics tried CPR but weren’t successful.

At about 11:28 a.m., officers responded to a single-car crash on the West Dodge Expressway near 192nd Street after witnesses said a Chevy heading east went off the road and hit a pole. According to the release, “the force of the crash spun the car out and it caught fire.”

Witnesses were able to help the driver get out of the car before it was fully engulfed. That area of the eastbound West Dodge Expressway was closed for about 30 minutes while the fire was put out.

Police said they didn’t believe speed or alcohol were contributing factors.
