Drew, we know the patient, a 16-year-old girl, was conscious and alert at the accident scene. And we know that after she was transported to Salem Hospital, police were headed there to talk to her about the incident. But as far as her condition, we have no official information.

I heard from my 15/yo daughter, who knows the girl, that her pelvis was crushed, and her hips were possibly dislocated. This information has not been validated. Hoping that she will heal quickly and be all right!
