OMAHA, Nebraska — A driver has died in a midtown Omaha crash that also severely injured her adult passenger, but spared an infant strapped into a car seat.

Witnesses tell police that a car illegally passed several other vehicles stopped at a red light, entered the intersection and was hit by another car passing through the intersection. The impact sent the first car into a tree, killing 35-year-old driver Lerosha Vaneese Forrest. A passenger in Forrest's car, 43-year-old Ronnie Forrest, was taken to a hospital with severe head injuries.

A 1-month old baby girl in the car was uninjured.

Police say the driver of the other car also was uninjured.
