State trooper gets ticket for crash

OMAHA — A state trooper will receive a traffic ticket in connection with a vehicle collision that Omaha police say happened after the trooper ran a red light.

Omaha City Prosecutor David Smalheiser said Wednesday that 43-year-old Jason Morris will get a citation for violating a traffic signal.

Police said Morris ran a red light in the early morning hours of Feb. 23. He collided with another vehicle. Two adults and three children went to the hospital but were not seriously hurt. Morris was not injured.

An investigation of the crash is continuing. Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said an internal review or investigation will not be public information because it is a personnel issue.
