OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Police say a man who had fallen in a midtown Omaha street died after being hit by several vehicles, none of which stopped.

Omaha police say officers were called to 36th and Leavenworth streets late Friday night. A witness told officers that the man, identified as 64-year-old Julian Branker, was using a cane and walking along Leavenworth when he slipped and fell into the roadway. The witness stopped to help, but says three different vehicles hit Branker before the witness could reach him.

Police say none of the vehicles stopped.

Branker was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Police had not announced any arrests by midday Saturday.
