Lincoln, Neb. Lincoln Police have reopened several streets in downtown Lincoln that were closed for nearly four hours after a serious crash Sunday night.

LPD said an SUV, pickup and a car collided just after 7:00pm. Police say a silver Mazda driven by a female driver was heading west on O Street, as a GMC Yukon driven by a 36-year-old male was heading south on 9th Street.

Both cars collided at the intersection. According to Police, the Mazda spun and clipped the bumper of a third car. A rear passenger in the Mazda suffered life-threatening injuries as a result of the crash and was transported to a local hospital.

The rear passenger has been identified as 22-year-old Yang Yang of Lincoln.

Police say the car ran a red light at the intersection causing the crash. Officers added alcohol does not appear to be a factor. No citations have been issued yet.

Because of the crash, officers shut down O Street from 2nd Street to 10th Street and 9th Street between N Street and P Street. Police called in an accident reconstruction team which is why the streets were closed.

All streets reopened just before 11:00pm.
