A father in Nebraska found out hours after hearing the worst possible news that his daughter had died in a crash that she had actually lived…
Over the Memorial Day weekend, two people were killed and 20 other people were hurt in Lincoln. In a press release, police said that after the first crash, “both vehicles left the road” and hit several people who had gathered to watch a car show.
Hannah Wadiso was hurt in the crash, according to her father, who spoke to ABC station KETV. She had just turned 18 and graduated from high school. But he said that when he got there, he was told she had already died…
Tesfaye Ailbe told KETV that he had a bad feeling when his daughter left for the event on May 29.
Later that night, he got a call from someone who said they had helped get his daughter out from under a car and that she was “in bad shape.”
He said that when he got there, an officer told him that a car had run over his daughter, killing her.
He told the news outlet, “On the road, we cried, got on our knees, and prayed.”
KETV says that two hours later, he got another phone call from a local hospital telling him that she was alive but in “critical condition.”
In a statement released by Lincoln Police Chief Teresa Ewins on Friday, the government said that there was “devastating miscommunication with a family member at the scene.”
“A bystander called Tesfaye Alibe, a family member, and told him that Hannah had been hit by a car.
When Mr. Alibe got there, he ran to one of the crashed cars, pointed to a dead person, and said it was his daughter.
Officers who had just tried to save her life confirmed that she did not make it “This is what the police said in a statement.
“Mr. Alibe stayed at the scene with the police. As more information about his daughter was gathered, it became clear that she was not one of the young women who died in the car. Hannah was hurt because she was a bystander.
She was taken to the hospital, where her wounds were so bad that they could kill her “The person talking kept going.
“We know how sad everyone felt when this terrible misunderstanding happened. We’re still working with Mr. Alibe, and we’ve already told him we’re sorry.
The good news is that Hannah’s condition is getting better, and we hope the same for the other 19 victims.”
Hannah’s pelvis was broken, and she has a long way to go to get better, but her father said he is glad his daughter is still alive.
“God is good,” he told KETV.
“The other two didn’t get this chance,” he said, referring to Emily Siebenhor, 20, and Edith Hermosillo, 22, whose car was hit and they were both pronounced dead at the scene.
Hannah is in the hospital, according to a GoFundMe page, and she will need at least 10 weeks of rehabilitation.
The person who started the GoFundMe page said that as soon as they heard the news, they called her “wonderful” father, who used to own a local African restaurant that has since closed.
“The family has a lot of medical bills and is also taking care of another child with special needs at home,” the organizer wrote. “Any gift will be a great help.”
The organizer also said that the teen’s father is “extremely grateful” to the people who pulled the car off of his daughter and saved her life.
In a press release, police said that the accident happened on May 29 at around 11 p.m., when a Ford Taurus going “close to 90 mph” hit a Toyota Corolla with Siebenhor and Hermosillo in it.
The police say that the 18-year-old driver of the Ford Taurus who turned himself in to them on Tuesday was high on marijuana.
The driver was arrested and charged with two counts of manslaughter and two counts of DUI with serious bodily injury, according to the police.
