Once at the scene, police found two people in the backseat of a Honda sedan. One of those people jumped in the front seat and tried to flee, but crashed into a yard a few blocks away, officials said.

The driver — the 17-year-old boy — ran from the scene, but officers found him more than an hour later wearing only underwear and a t-shirt.

Back in the car, police found 45-year-old Erin Ward in the backseat trying to get dressed, authorities said.

Officers spotted an Omaha Public Schools identification card in the car, which is when Ward said she was a substitute teacher at Burke High School and other Omaha schools.
