TY Rannals Death – TY Rannals died early Monday morning in west Omaha after he was involved in an accident with a tractor-trailer truck. He was 22 years old. The incident took at around 6:50 in the morning close to the intersection of 132nd Street and West Dodge Road. According to the reports of the Omaha Police Department, a 2023 Kawasaki ZX636 motorcycle was traveling south on 132nd Street and was approaching the junction with Dodge Street.
When the semitrailer was attempting to turn onto the westbound on-ramp of Dodge Street, a motorcyclist traveling in the other direction collided with it. The semitrailer was a 2014 Freightliner. Soon after the incident with the semi, bystanders started performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the unresponsive rider, who was later determined to be Ty Rannals of Omaha.
After being taken over by the Omaha Fire Department’s paramedics, Rannals was brought to Creighton University Medical Center-Bergan Mercy, where he passed very shortly after his arrival at the hospital. The driver of the semitrailer was suspected of committing negligent homicide while operating a motor vehicle and was issued a citation. Monday morning, the on- and off-ramps for westbound traffic were closed off by the police until 10:45 a.m.
