One of the two young men who died in a tragic concrete truck wreck will be laid to rest Tuesday. 

Michael Dearden and Phil Hertel died last Wednesday after a truck rolled while making a turn at 120th and Giles, crushing the vehicle the pair was riding in. 

Funeral services for Hertel took place Monday morning and Dearden's funeral is Tuesday afternoon.

The Sarpy County attorney said it could be awhile for the investigation into the crash to be complete. After the investigation, it will be determined whether or not criminal charges will be filed against the driver of the concrete truck.
