OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha woman who is accused of causing a fatal crash that killed two people last week has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter.

Twenty-eight-year-old Chinyere Nwuju was arrested Saturday after she was released from a hospital.

Police said Nwuju was speeding southbound in a sport utility vehicle when she ran a red light in northwestern Omaha and hit a pickup truck around 9 p.m. Wednesday.

The force of the collision split the pickup in half and killed Roberto Gonzalez, 58, and Annette North, 56, who were both from Omaha.

Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicle records show that Nwuju's driver's license is suspended.
