OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – Authorities suspect a medical condition in the death of a western Iowa man involved in a car crash. An Omaha Police Department news release says officers were sent to the accident scene in northeast Omaha just after 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. They found that a car had veered off a road and struck a power pole. There was no sign that the driver had tried to stop before hitting the pole. Police say the driver was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He was identified as 73-year old James Fisher, of Carter Lake. An autopsy has been scheduled.
