this happened at 6:30pm yesterday. We need more details like who was driving, what went wrong, and how are the boys today. Let's hope they are all ok and already home. It's wait and see if we get any updates.

there were two girls and three boys ages from 15-18. One is still in critical condition at Yale. WPD report that they may have been trying to see how much "air" they could get coming off the railroad crossing. It was a big car (Lincoln) and they lost control on the far side of the tracks. Kids out of control

who was driving? Kids always think what they're doing is cool and fun. I hope they recover ok.

It was the true definition of an accident, the road was damp and they lost control of the car.

They weren't trying to catch air, that was a rumor started by Waterford High school students, everyone just needs to pray for them.

Everyone pray for Sarah, Nicole, Shane, Matt, and james. Everyone is really upset at our school and graduation is coming and Sarah now wont be able to walk across that stage to get her diploma that she worked really hard for.

everyone out here with a heart is praying you your son and the other kids and all families. Also for the friends who will be graduating soon. Let's hope they all recover. Crawling away is better than being thrown out and as time goes on, more real facts will come out. good luck.(sure does seem to me that they release you from the hospital rather soon, though)

first of all,dont kid yourself and think for a second that this DIZZY person even knows the truth,i know for a fact that matt,and shane,didnt have booze in there system,and you say they were drunk,then you say they were shit talking punks,when i know for sure,that you dont know my son,shane,and if you knew matt,you would not call him a shit talking punk,this situation is really non of your business,so if you dont have anything nice to say,then please keep your mouth shut,we are still praying that matt will make it,this is far from over,these kids will have a long hard recovery,and again,thank you all for your prayers
