A young man thrown from a golf cart during an accident earlier this month in Gretna has died of his injuries.
31-year-old Patrick Jurgensen of Gretna had been listed in critical condition at Creighton University Medical Center since the accident on July 10th. Jurgensen died Wednesday night.
According to the Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office, Jurgensen suffered severe head injuries after being thrown from the golf cart at a residential intersection in Gretna. The golf cart had four people on it and was driven by 24-year-old Cody Dembinsky of Gretna. Jurgensen rode on the back of the cart. When the cart turned into the intersection, Jurgensen was thrown from it.
The investigation into the accident continues. The Sarpy County Attorney’s Office will consider possible charges in the case.
