To Every Action There is an Equal Legal Reaction

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.
