Arbor Road fatal

A man is dead after police say he drove a white SUV through a stop sign and into a bean field north of Lincoln on Monday, striking a berm and sending his vehicle airborne.

A 33-year-old Lincoln man died after police say he drove his white SUV through a stop sign and into a bean field north of Lincoln on Monday, striking a berm and sending his vehicle airborne before crashing into a tree.

Christopher Gardner had been traveling north on 27th Street near Arbor Road at about  7:30 p.m. Monday when he ran the stop sign at the T-intersection and entered the bean field, Sheriff Terry Wagner said Tuesday morning.

Wagner said Gardner's GMC Terrain jumped Little Salt Creek before coming to rest against a tree. He was dead when first responders arrived at the scene, just north of the Lincoln city limit.

It's unclear if Gardner was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the crash, Wagner said. He was not wearing a seat belt, authorities said.

Deputies are still working to determine what caused Gardner to leave the roadway.
