Omaha Police say 22 year old Fredrick Getzschman of Herman, Nebraska was killed in a motorcycle accident early Wednesday morning at 60th and Leavenworth.
Investigators say Getzschman was westbound on Leavenworth around 3:30 a.m. As he entered Elmwood Park on Elmwood Park Drive, Sergeant Doug Klein says Getzschman failed to negotiate a curve.
The motorcycle went off the roadway and collided with a metal utility pole. Getzschman was transported to Nebraska Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
In a separate accident, a 12 year old boy was injured when he was struck by a vehicle crossing 96th and Mockingbird around 7:00 a.m. The boy suffered a broken leg and was being checked for other injuries.
