Four Brownsville High School students involved in a serious car crash on Thursday night are expected to return home tonight or tomorrow, according to an emergency worker who treated the teens at the scene.
All four teens, whose names have not been released, are in stable condition, according to Brownsville volunteer firefighter and EMT Richard Black.
"After all is said and done, everybody will make it home," said Mr. Black, who said he had spoken with the teen's families.
When paramedics, firefighters and police arrived on the accident scene in a westbound lane of of Route 40 just before 10 p.m. on Thursday, however, they found chaos.
The car had rolled onto its roof and all four teens were out of vehicle, he said. Two were sitting against a nearby Jersey barrier, one was lying in the roadway and a fourth -- the best friend of Mr. Black's younger brother -- was walking around in a daze, he said.
"He was awake and talking and said he was okay," Mr. Black said.
All four teens were conscious and able to answer questions appropriately, and were conscious when they were flown to hospitals in Pittsburgh, he said.
Two were transported to UPMC Presbyterian, one was taken to Allegheny General Hospital and one was taken to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. Their injuries ranged from head injuries to broken ribs and abrasions, he said.
Mr. Black said he did not have any information about the cause of the accident, which is being investigated by the Brownsville Police Department.
Brownsville police could not be reached for comment.
