Fremont, NE - The Dodge County Sheriff's Office says Jackson Blick was driving a 1966 Ford Mustang on Old Highway 8 just before 10 p.m. on Monday night. Three other teens were in the car at the time.
Blick died in the rollover crash. His passenger Tyler Walling also died on the scene, and Trey Hansen died Tuesday from his injuries. The fourth passenger, Jake Burnside, went to Alegent Creighton. He is in critical condition. The teens were all 16-years-old.
On Tuesday night, everyone in Fremont rallied behind the four families involved in the deadly car crash.
Colebarn Hart played football with Hansen and baseball with Blick.
He said the baseball team got together on Tuesday.
"I had a baseball meeting today at the high school, and the whole team was there," said Hart. "We were talking about how we were to proceed without Jackson, and it's hard."
Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash. None of the teens was wearing a seat belt.
The Dodge County Sheriff's Office and the Nebraska State Patrol are investigating the crash.
