The woman who died after a Thursday morning collision at the intersection of 40th Street and Nebraska 2 had been "demonstrating erratic driving behavior" in the moments before the crash, according to Lincoln Police. 

Asuncion Ramos, who was driving a red Jeep Liberty east on Nebraska 2 when it collided with a gray Honda Accord that had been northbound on 40th Street Thursday morning, was pronounced dead at a Lincoln hospital, police say. She was 66 years old. 

The Honda's driver — a 44-year-old man — remains hospitalized after the cars collided at 11 a.m., Officer Erin Spilker said. His injuries are considered life-threatening, Spilker said.

Investigators worked at the scene for several hours and officers interviewed witnesses to the crash. The area was reopened to traffic around 3 p.m.

Spilker said no citations or arrests have been made and that the investigation is ongoing.
