While driving to school five teens were injured when the car they were in struck the side of a train. According to deputies in Calumet County the students were traveling along East River Road in the town of Rantoul, south of Brillion, when their car struck the side of a westbound train.
All five young victims, students at Brillion High School, were injured during the accident. Injuries sustained during the crash included significant head injuries, facial injuries, bruised lungs and fractured bones.
Both police and doctors believe that the teens survived, in part, because of their seat belt use. All five were wearing their seat belts at the time of the accident. Calumet County Sheriffs say that alcohol was not involved.
Since the accident the condition of the accident victims has been steadily improving. The attorneys at Hupy & Abraham hope that the injured teens continue to recover quickly and fully from their injuries.
