OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- Omaha Police identified the man killed in a four-vehicle crash involving a school bus Wednesday on Interstate 680, just west of 72nd Street.

After his vehicle collided with the bus, Bradley Uecker, 47, died at the hospital.

The bus driver was also taken to the hospital for treatment, complaining of soreness to his wrist, knees, and back.

No children were aboard the school bus.

The circumstances of the crash remain under investigation, but police said a Buick and an Audi were eastbound in the left lane before the driver of the Buick passed the Audi in the right lane and moved back into the left lane, striking the Audi and causing both cars to spin out into the grassy median.

The Buick continued into oncoming lanes, crashing into the school bus. Debris then hit a third car.

The other two drivers and one passenger in another vehicle were not hurt.
