OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a car driver has died after a fiery Omaha crash that also killed his passenger.

The Omaha Police Department says 22-year-old Michael Harnett, of Bellevue, died early Thursday morning. He’d been hospitalized since the crash early Saturday morning.

Police say Harnett lost control of his car and it slid across several lanes of traffic in southeast Omaha, running into a cement truck. The car then caught fire.

Police have identified the passenger as 33-year-old Misty Vetrovsky, also of Bellevue.

Crash investigators say they believe speed and alcohol were crash factors.
