There's been an outpouring of support from Nebraskans for the family and friends of the four Gretna High School girls who died in a car crash Monday night, along with the one survivor.

People are posting their condolences and sharing photos in Gretna school colors with the hashtag #GoGreen4Gretna on social media.

Several people on Facebook have changed their profile photo to green and yellow ribbon that says Prayers for Gretna.

As of Wednesday evening, a GoFundMe account that says it will evenly distribute funds between the five families had more than $13,000.

The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office and Gretna Public Schools officials said they plan to have a press conference at a later date to share more information about the crash. As of now, the names of those involved has not been released.
