A Lincoln man suffered life-threatening injuries Sunday night after being thrown from a car that crashed after driving over a Lincoln roundabout median near Memorial Stadium, a police spokeswoman said.
Witnesses told police that a 2006 Mazda 6 entered the west side of the roundabout at 9:30 p.m. at Ninth Street and Salt Creek Roadway at a high rate of speed, Officer Angela Sands said Monday.
The car went airborne and collided with a pole on the east side of the roundabout, Sands said.

Lincoln Fire and Rescue crews took 34-year-old James Hottovy to a local hospital with critical injuries and also transported 29-year-old April Dohmen of Lincoln. She had serious, but non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.
Damage from the crash rendered the car a total loss.
Police are still investigating whether alcohol factored into the crash and if the driver and passenger were wearing seat belts.
