An event to raise money for the expenses of a 20-year-old Omaha man critically injured in a crash four months ago near 168th and Washington Streets will be held Saturday at St. Mark Lutheran Church.
The benefit for the family of Devon Kurmel will be held at 1821 N. 90th St. from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The fundraiser will include a silent auction and a nacho bar with a suggested donation of $5 per person .
Kurmel was northbound on 168th Street on March 9 when his 2006 Mercury Grand Marquis hit a patch of ice and crossed the center line, police said. The Mercury collided with a southbound 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee just before 11 p.m.
The driver of the Jeep was not injured, but Kurmel remains in a coma with a traumatic brain injury. His family is trying to prepare for final expenses if Kurmel doesn’t recover and to provide for his 2-year-old daughter.
