Teens Injured in One-Vehicle Crash

Two teenagers were seriously injured in a West Omaha traffic accident Friday afternoon near 156th and Bob Boozer Boulevard.

The victims are identified as 16-year-old Aaron Gosch, the driver, and his passenger, 16-year-old Thomas Halber.

Investigators say Gosch was driving a Honda Civic northbound on Bob Boozer Boulevard shortly before 5 p.m. when he lost control of the car and partially left the roadway. The front and rear tires on the passenger side went off the pavement, the vehicle slid sideways and hit a guard rail.

Halber was pinned in the car. Rescue crews cut away the wreckage to free him. He suffered a broken pelvis, hip and a brain bleed.

Gosch suffered a punctured elbow and a concussion.

Both teens are expected to recover.

Gosch was cited for Failure to Maintain Lane and for a Fixed Object Collision.
