OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Charges are pending against Kenneth Greer, 51, the driver of a pickup truck involved in a multi-vehicle accident Wednesday night that injured four people including a child who was critically hurt.

Child critically hurt in crash at 50th & Grand Avenue.

Investigators said just before 5:30 p.m., officers were called to a hit-and-run investigation at 48th and Grand Avenue.

Police said a Kia Sorento was northbound on 48th from a stop sign at Grand Avenue when a westbound Chevy Silverado pickup driven by Greet hit the rear passenger fender of the Kia.

The Kia spun and crashed on the northeast corner of the intersection, according to investigators. Police said Greer then drove off westbound on Grand Avenue.

Moments later the Chevy hit an eastbound Dodge Journey near 50th and Grand Avenue before hitting a stop sign. Police said the Chevy then collided with a Buick Verano sedan.

Three people inside of the Buick were taken to the hospital. A young girl in that Buick suffered critical injuries.

Police said speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.

Greer is being treated for a fractured pelvis.

All others involved had minor injuries.
