A 17-year-old boy who collided with an ambulance while driving a van last week has died.

Emergency personnel clear the scene of a three-vehicle crash near 204th and Harrison streets that included an ambulance from Gretna Fire & Rescue.

Seth Fereherm of Omaha has died from his injuries, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Wednesday. He was being treated for serious head injuries at a hospital.

The accident occurred shortly before 10:16 a.m. on Dec. 21 at the intersection of 204th and Harrison streets north of Gretna.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, which is still investigating the incident, the crash occurred when Fereherm attempted to turn left from southbound 204th Street onto eastbound Harrison Street at a traffic light in a Toyota Tundra.

As he attempted the turn, a Gretna Fire & Rescue ambulance, with its lights and siren on, was traveling northbound on 204th Street through the intersection when it collided with the pickup truck. The ambulance was taking Debra Brookhouser, a 72-year-old woman from Gretna, to a hospital.

Brookhouser was pronounced dead at the scene.

Three Gretna Volunteer Fire Department firefighters/paramedics who were in the ambulance were injured in the crash.

Two of them were treated and released from the hospital, while the third first responder suffered minor injuries and was not taken to the hospital.
