Family and friends of a traffic accident victim are trying to raise money to cover the cost of his funeral. Twenty-four-year-old Mark Morgan was killed in the crash.
The Dodge County Sheriff's Department responded to the call on Ridge Road, just west of Fremont. They say 18-year-old Quintin Frazier lost control of the pickup truck he was driving and crashed into a ditch.
Morgan was partially ejected from the truck and killed. A 15-year-old passenger suffered minor injuries.
Mark Morgan's family says there was no insurance money to cover the $11,000 cost of the funeral. They are holding car wash fundraising events and the funeral home is accepting donations to help.
Donations can be made at Roeder Mortuary at 4912 Ames in Omaha.
The car washes are being held Thursday from 11 - 2 at the Auto Zone in Fremont - 601 E. 23rd St. and from 11-3 at the Omaha Auto Zone - 4201 North 30th St.
