OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A Gretna man died when his car vaulted over a bridge embankment in southwestern Omaha and crashed into a creek below the bridge, police said.

The crash happened Thursday night just south of 156th Street and West Center Road. Police said Cody Bates, 22, was driving a sedan northbound on 156th Street when the car left the road just before reaching the bridge that spans Papillion Creek. Police say the car vaulted over a bridge retaining wall and crashed into the embankment on the north side of the creek.

Bates was pronounced dead at the scene. He was the lone occupant in the car, police said.
