OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a car driver has been arrested after fleeing the scene of a fatal collision with a motorcyclist in western Omaha.

The accident was reported around 7:20 p.m. Wednesday. Police say the motorcycle was heading west when it collided with the eastbound car as the car turned north. The car left the crash scene, but it was soon spotted.

The driver was arrested on suspicion of committing several crimes, including leaving the scene of a fatal crash and driving under the influence, fourth offense. Online court records don’t show that he’s been formally charged.

Police say the injured motorcyclist was taken to Nebraska Medical Center, where he soon died. Police identified him as 43-year-old Justin Hart, who lived in Omaha.
