Police Crash

The accident happened on the intersection of 10th and Q streets in downtown Lincoln.

According to eye witnesses, a police cruiser heading west on Q street ran a red light while in pursuit of another vehicle, crashing into a northbound vehicle on 10th Street.

Police identified the driver of the police cruiser as 27-year-old Dave Moody, and the driver of the other vehicle as 22-year-old Tammy Scholl.

Scholl was taken to Bryan LGH West immediately after the accident, and is currently listed in serious condition. Moody suffered no major injuries.

Eyewitnesses say the cruiser had emergency lights on, but did not have its sirens blaring.

“I noticed that his airbag had deployed and within five seconds he was running out of the car to make sure she was okay, but I did not see an airbag on her car. She was not really responding well and it was really scary,” says eyewitness Abbie Dumler of Fort Collins.

Police say the accident is under investigation. If found negligent, Moddy could face progressive discipline.

“Cars are to yield the right of way to emergency vehicles, but that is still under investigation,” said Captain Jim Thoms of the LPD.
