BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) - Authorities on Thursday arrested a driver involved in a December crash south of Bellevue that killed two people.

The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office said in a news release that Joshua Martinez, 27, of Plattsmouth, was arrested Thursday on warrants charging him with several counts, including vehicular homicide and driving on a suspended license. Gabrielle Ramirez, 19, and Beau Dasher, 20, both of Plattsmouth, were passengers in Ramirez's car and died at the scene of the Dec. 15 crash on Highway 75 beneath the Highway 34 bridge.

A car driven by Martinez crossed through the highway median in icy conditions and collided with a pickup truck, investigators said. The driver and a front-seat passenger of the pickup, both from Council Bluffs, Iowa, were seriously injured, as was Martinez. A 1-year-old child secured in a child seat in the pickup wasn't injured.
