Omaha Police continue the investigation of a traffic accident that injured three people, one critically, Wednesday morning.

It happened shortly after 10 A.M. at 120th and Franklin.

Investigators say a Dodge Ram pickup, driven by Steven May, 44, was northbound on 120th St when it ran into the back of a parked Ford F350 pickup that had a construction trailer with a signal arrow bar attached.

The Ford, used by a contractor work crew filling potholes, was pushed forward, striking a pedestrian construction worker who then struck his head on a steel bucket of a skid loader that had asphalt in it. The worker is identified as Sergio Rodriguez-Lopez, 24. He was critically injured and is being treated for a head injury.

Another pedestrian construction worker, identified as Jesus A. Anguiana, 21, suffered a minor leg injury.

The operator of the skid loader, identified as Jorge Resendiz, 32, is being treated for a possible back injury.

May, the driver of the Dodge Ram, was not hurt. Police say charges against him are pending.

Authorities closed 120th St. from Blondo to Rose Lane until approximately 12:15 to investigate.

The Ford pickup and construction workers were park of a four man contractor crew from B&W Construction.
