Authorities say a 57-year-old woman has died after a rush-hour collision on Interstate 680 in west-central Omaha.

Police say Virginia Tardy was driving south around 7:50 a.m. Tuesday when she tried to avoid hitting a car that had slowed in front of her at an exit.

Tardy's vehicle swerved and hit the car, then ran onto a roadway shoulder and rolled, ejecting Tardy.

Tardy, of Omaha, was pronounced dead later Tuesday at Nebraska Medical Center.

Police say the other driver, 28-year-old Katie Liquori, of Omaha, was being treated at another hospital and was expected to survive her injuries.
