OMAHA, Nebraska — Authorities say icy roads have caused several accidents in eastern Nebraska and at least one fatal crash.
The freezing drizzle arrived at a bad time for travelers and morning commuters Tuesday, especially for people driving down residential streets headed to major thoroughfares and highways.
Authorities say a crash reported around 6:45 a.m. on the northwest side of Omaha left one person dead. The victim's name and other details haven't been released.
The National Weather Service issued a freezing rain advisory for eastern Nebraska and western Iowa that was scheduled to expire later Tuesday morning.
