OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha police say a man severed one of his own hands with a knife at his home, then fled in his car before crashing it into a bridge in east Omaha.

Police say the incident began around 9:20 p.m. Monday when a woman called to report her husband had stabbed himself several times with a knife, then left. Officers were unable to find the 32-year-old man.

Shortly after 7 a.m. Tuesday, police were called back to the home when someone reported that the man had returned and completely severed one of his hands with the knife and again fled in a car. A short time later, police responding to the crash found the man and took him to a hospital.

Police say his severed hand was found at his home.
