The SUV went out of control and spun off the road about a mile and a-half south of the I-680 split. The vehicle continued to slide down an embankment before coming to rest in the east ditch. A passenger in the SUV, 72-year old Calixta Malapit Laplano, of Omaha, was injured, and transported by Neola Rescue to Mercy Hospital in Council Bluffs.
