A 31-year-old Lincoln man was arrested on suspicion of DUI and driving during suspension after police say he crashed into a Honda SUV on Friday in a collision that hospitalized two women.
Reuben Linton was driving south on 84th Street, nearing Nebraska 2, at about 11:50 p.m. Friday when the Honda, driven by a 24-year-old woman, began to turn from the northbound lane of 84th onto the highway, Lincoln Police Sgt. Chris Vollmer said.
As the woman turned, Linton's Dodge Challenger crashed into the front of her Honda, Lincoln Police Investigator Zachary Scholl wrote in the crash report.
Lincoln Fire and Rescue crews took the woman to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. Vollmer said she remained in critical condition Monday morning.
A 23-year-old passenger in the Honda was hospitalized with serious-but-non-life-threatening injuries, Vollmer said.
Investigators tested Linton, who "showed signs of impairment" when talking with officers, Scholl said in the crash report. The test indicated Linton's blood-alcohol content was 0.160%, twice the legal limit in Nebraska.
