A man is being treated for non-life threatening injuries after cutting off his hand and crashing his vehicle into a bridge.

Police say Quentin Dunaway, 32, stabbed himself several times with a knife before leaving his home near 135th and Atwood Avenue Monday evening in a red Ford Fusion. Officers searched for Dunaway, but were not able to find him. Local hospitals were alerted to be on the lookout for him if he were to seek medical care.

At 7 am Tuesday morning, police were called back to the home after Dunaway had returned. After arriving back at the residence, he completely cut off one of his hands using a knife. He then fled from police again.

About 45 minutes later, police responded to a crash near I-80 and 24th Street where a red Ford Fusion had crashed into a bridge. The driver of the vehicle was determined to be Dunaway and he was transported to Nebraska Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Dunaway's hand was recovered back at the residence.
