OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A 14-year-old driver was involved in a fatal crash involving a motorcycle and two vehicles Saturday night, according to Omaha Police.

Officers were dispatched to the intersection of S 156th & Q St at 8:14 p.m. for a personal injury crash.

Authorities learned a 2006 Harley-Davidson motorcycle was traveling westbound on Q St when a 2010 Ford F150 tried to make a turn north onto S 156th St from eastbound Q St in front of the motorcycle.

The Harley-Davidson and the Ford collided in the intersection, resulting in the passenger of the motorcycle being ejected and landing on an eastbound Honda CR-V.

Omaha Police say the driver and passenger of the motorcycle were taken to CHI Bergan-Mercy Hospital.

The driver of the motorcycle, identified as 29-year-old Dillon Flesner, was pronounced dead from his injuries.

The motorcycle passenger, 24-year-old Jenna Dieffenbach, sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries to her abdomen, pelvis, arm and ankle.

A 14-year-old girl was identified as the driver of the Ford. Police said the teen didn't have any permit or license. Police are working with the County Attorney's Office to determine charges.

The investigation is ongoing.
