OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) An Omaha man is facing numerous charges after he struck two vehicles on Interstate 80 Sunday afternoon.

According to police reports, 30-year-old Isaac Newton was driving a 2000 Chevy Blazer eastbound on Interstate 80 near mile marker 450 just after 4 p.m.

Newton was allegedly driving eastbound at a high rate of speed and weaving in and out of traffic.  As he attempted to pass a 2011 Chevy Traverse, he sideswiped the vehicle forcing it off the road to the left and into the emergency lane.

He then allegedly struck the rear end of a 2006 SUV, also forcing it off the road.  The driver of the SUV then hit the median barrier and came to rest I the emergency lane.

Police said Newton then fled the scene.

A witness to both crashes followed Newton to 36th and Hascall.  Newton is charged with DUI (three priors), leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, criminal impersonation, violation of an ignition lock device and willful reckless driving.  He is also charged with assault/strangulation in another case where he allegedly broke the front door of his ex-girlfriend’s home and assaulted her.
