Teen From Peru Seriously Hurt In Crash

Posted by wlpo on June 25, 2009

A 19 year old from Peru is said to be in critical condition after being involved in a fatal crash outside of Omaha, Nebraska.

According to the Omaha World-Herald, Ellen Etzenbach is being treated at an Omaha hospital. She was one of six people in a pickup truck that rolled over early Saturday morning. Etzenbach’s teenage cousin from Nebraska was the driver and was killed in the crash. Another cousin of Etzenbach’s in the truck died yesterday.

Investigators say the driver of Etzenbach’s truck overcorrected on a highway causing the truck to slide sideways, roll several times and hit a street sign, fence and two different trees before finally stopping.
