By Lindsey Theis. CREATED Aug 21, 2014

Omaha, Neb. (KMTV)-- Three people were taken to the hospital Thursday evening after a crash on the South Omaha bridge near 13th Street and Missouri.

Police say a female driver, 18, of a blue pick up truck was heading westbound on 275/Missouri road and jumped the median, clipped the back of a Jeep in the eastbound, and hit a semi truck head-on.

The truck was so badly damaged, first responders had to tear the roof off the truck.

The female driver of the truck was to the hospital in possible serious condition, but police say she was talking.

The two other drivers were also taken to the hospital. Police say they were in less serious condition.

Traffic was shut down for at least an hour on Eastbound 275 at 13th.
