A 30-year-old Omaha man died from injuries suffered in a one-vehicle crash near North 36th and Redick Avenues on Friday night. 

The driver, Jamel Wallace, was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center and pronounced dead shortly after arrival. He was the sole occupant of the vehicle.

Omaha police said Wallace was driving south on Martin Avenue in a 2008 Chevrolet Equinox about 11 p.m.

Investigators said he failed to follow the road's curve and crashed into a retaining wall, then struck a tree south of Redick and 36th.

Investigators said speed was a factor in the crash.
