The driver was a Junior (Bryce Gould) and two were Sophmores (Alec Gonzales and Jerry Filker). They were all in Bryce's car and Bryce ran the stop sign at Woodruff and 84th. They were hit by another Junior (Tyler Advocate) and then hit a girl from South Christian. Tyler Advocate is not injured, Alec Gonzales and Jerry Filker have a broken bone or two, nothing serious, but Bryce Gould was flown to the hospital and is in critical condition. He has both broken legs (one is severe enough that he already has pins put in it) and he has bleeding of the brain. That is all that I know so far.

Byron Center Students Hospitalized After Crash

Created: 11/4/2007 6:21:50 PM
Updated: 11/4/2007 6:30:35 PM

Three Byron Center High School students went to the hospital after a three car accident Saturday night.

It happened at the intersection of 84th Street and Woodruff Drive.

Kent County Sheriff's deputies say the three students were in the same car. The driver pulled out in front of a pickup truck heading east on 84th.

The truck pushed the students' car into the path of another car heading west on 84th.

Byron Fire crews had to use the jaws of life to get the students out of the car. The driver, 16-year-old Bryce Gould, was airlifted to the hospital with a head injury, broken leg and pelvis. He is in critical condition.

One of the passengers, 15-year-old Alec Gonzalez, had a broken leg and the other student, 16-year-old Jeremiah Filker, was taken to the hospital with bruised ribs.

The drivers of the other two cars were not injured in the crash.

So... why did the SUV run the stop sign? From what I have been told, he was going pretty quick out of the subdivision. The damage I saw of the vehicle looked like it was cruising.

Doctors stopped the medication that induces a coma, they are now waiting on Bryce to come out of
it. He has had surgery on his left leg, 3 rods
put in place to repair the fractures. His left hand is severely damaged and will undergo surgery
today to fix that. He is stable, but still listed
in critical condition.

My teacher (Mr. Smokoski) visited Bryce yesterday night (Monday) and he said he talked to Bryce, and Bryce could hear him but couldn't speak back. His family is pretty upset. (especially Bree) but please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers. Bryce came for my language arts class and we only got to see him once or twice before the accident occured. He had just started coming to help with the class about 2-3 weeks ago
