Two killed, one arrested in South Omaha crash

Victor Rodriguez, 27, was apprehended after fleeing the scene of a two-car accident that killed two passengers and wounded five others near 42nd and H St. on Dec. 12. Rodriguez lost control of his Nissan Pathfinder Sunday night and collided head-on with a GMC Yukon carrying five people. Manuel Santos-Gomez, 24, a passenger in Rodriguez' vehicle, and Danny Alcantara, 22, a passenger in the Yukon, both died at the Nebraska Medical Center from their injuries. Five other passengers were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police found Rodriguez at his house and apprehended him after a short foot chase. He was treated for injuries at the Creighton University Medical Center and booked on two counts of criminal homicide. Investigators suspect speed and alcohol were factors in the accident.
