Omaha, NE (AP) - An Omaha teenager critically hurt in a rollover crash last week has died of her injuries.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that 18-year-old Maranda Carey died Saturday. She was the driver of an SUV that rolled on March 29 along Interstate 680 in north Omaha.

Carey, who attended Benson High, was in a medically induced coma earlier this week after suffering fractures to her face, two broken arms, three broken ribs, a broken leg and a punctured lung.

Three other teens in the SUV also were hurt.

Carey's best friend, a 17-year-old Omaha girl, was in fair condition earlier this week. A 19-year-old man and 16-year-old girl were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and have since been released.
