OMAHA, NE – Two drivers were rushed to the hospital with critical injuries after their vehicles collided in Washington County early Sunday morning, KETV reports.
The accident occurred in the area of Highway 30 and County Road 29 southwest of Blair shortly after midnight. Investigators said 18-year-old Madison Everitt of Fremont was driving a Jeep west when she crossed over the center line and collided nearly head-on with a car driven by 34-year-old Eduard Bruwer of Blair.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said both drivers were transported to Nebraska Medicine. Everitt was reported to be in extremely critical condition while Bruwer was listed in critical condition.
Fremont High School, where Everitt had recently graduated from, sent an email reporting that she had suffered a catastrophic brain injury “that she will not recover from”. School officials called it a “tragic loss” for the school, the school district and the community.
Crisis counselors were available Monday at the high school for those in need of assistance.
