Sarpy County - The Sarpy County Sheriff's office says 30-year-old Zachary Austin died in a crash Wednesday night at 114th and Capehart.
Investigators say he was driving northbound in a 1998 Dodge Ram pickup when he ran a stop sign, before hitting a 2006 Hummer driven by Mackenzie Bougher.
Bougher was driving eastbound on Capehart Road.
Both vehicles went off the road and hit an electrical pole.
Austin was not wearing a seat belt. He was thrown from the truck and pronounced dead on the scene. Investigators say Austin is from Mason City, IA and Bougher is a student at Platteview High School.
Paramedics took Bougher to Alegent-Creighton Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
