OMAHA, Nebraska — Police say a man who crashed into the Gerald Ford birth site in Omaha has died from his injuries.
Investigators say 41-year-old Eric Tennant, of Omaha, was behind the wheel Friday morning when his van crashed into a fence and brick wall entrance of the site that makes former President Ford's place of birth.
Police say speed and rain-slicked streets were factors in the crash. Police are also investigating whether Tennant had been drinking before the crash.
Investigators say he was not wearing a seat belt.
An employee of the birth site estimated damage to the property at between $30,000 and $50,000.
