Omaha South High School teacher Stacey Klinger, 45, died Nov. 3 after she was struck by a car while crossing 23rd Street after school. Witnesses say Salvador Jimenez, 32, was turning left following a stop at the intersection of 23rd and J St. when he struck Klinger. Jimenez tried to administer CPR before officials arrived and transported Klinger to the Creighton University Medical Center. Police are continuing to investigate, but don’t believe speed and alcohol were factors.
