OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha police say a crash that saw a van burst into flames has left one man dead and another critically injured.

The crash happened Wednesday afternoon where northbound I-680 and I-80 split. Investigators say the van was speeding when it left the roadway, struck and vaulted over a metal guardrail, and then hit a concrete bridge support and burst into flames.

One man was declared dead at the scene, and another man was taken to a hospital with severe burns to his lower legs.

Authorities closed northbound I-680 from the area where the crash occurred for hours.

Officials have not yet released the names of the victims.
