OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a driver killed in a west Omaha crash.

The driver, the lone occupant of the car, was pronounced dead at the scene Tuesday. He's been identified as 70-year-old Billy Pipkin, who lived in Omaha.

The accident occurred around 11:15 a.m. near 108th and West Dodge Road when a northbound car took an offramp from Interstate 680 onto West Dodge and went off the road. The car crossed all lanes of West Dodge before rolling into a ditch, investigators said.

Police are investigating whether a medical condition contributed to Pipkin's crash.
