Neb. cop killed in rollover crash

By PoliceOne Staff

LINCOLN, Neb. — A Lincoln police officer died in a rollover crash Wednesday night on his way to work.

Officer Tony Howe, 37, worked the overnight shift in the criminal investigation unit and was driving his Dodge Neon when the accident occurred,according to the Omaha World Herald. Investigators said the vehicle travelled into the median, hit a drain and went airborne before rolling.

Howe was pronounced dead at York General Hospital. He was not wearing a seat belt.

Colleagues saw Howe was caring, thoughtful and always took time to help people.

"Tony was the kind of police officer that, if you or any member of your family were a victim, you would like to see handle the situation," Lincoln Police Chief Jim Peschong said Thursday. "He had the ability to bring calm to a chaotic scene."
