Terry Grasz improving at Lincoln hospital

A 46-year-old Brady man, critically injured in an Oct. 25 collision, is slowly improving at a Lincoln hospital.

Terry Grasz is still sedated as he undergoes surgeries that include skin grafts, according to his sister-in-law, Jeannine Davis of Brady.

“He’s got a lot of positives as far as vitals and neurology and he’s healthy for the most part,” Davis said. “He’s healing well but it’s a slow process.”

Following a collision on an icy Highway 30 overpass, Terry’s wife, Elaine Grasz, and two Brady school students—Conner Gentry, 14, and his brother, Colten, 10, of North Platte—died when their cars collided.

Terry was driving the vehicle in which Elaine was a passenger.

Davis said Terry, who faces a long road of surgeries, is responsive to voices.

She said one son, Tad, a fifth grader, has returned to classes at Brady Public Schools. Another son, Tyrel is in Lincoln most of the time and will complete a semester of freshman classes at Chadron State College online and through e-mail.

Terry is at Saint Elizabeth Regional Burn and Wound Care Center.

Cards and letters can be sent to Terry at: Saint Elizabeth Regional Burn and Wound Care Center, 555 South 70th Street, Lincoln, NE, 68510.

A trust account to help with medical expenses for Terry and traveling expenses for the family has been set up at Gothenburg State Bank in Gothenburg and Brady under the Grasz name.
