An Omaha man was killed in a crash sometime Saturday night or Sunday morning.

Police were called to the Knolls Golf Course near 108th and Sahler streets around 7 a.m. Sunday when someone walking their dog spotted a pickup that had crashed.

Police determined the truck went off the road, hit a light pole, went down an embankment, through a fence and onto the golf course where it struck a tree, killing 33-year-old Edward Murphy.

Police are still investigating exactly when the accident took place. A neighbor tells Channel 6 News he heard a loud crash when he was going to bed around 10:30 Saturday night.
