A Lawrence High School teacher and the 28-year-old man who was driving a car that was involved in a head-on collision Thursday east of St. Louis remain in serious condition at hospital in St. Louis.
Corey Roelofs, 28, was driving a Honda Civic with David Platt, 44, a social studies teacher at LHS, as a passenger on Interstate 55-70 in Collinsville, Ill., when the car was struck head-on by a vehicle that crossed over the median and through a cable barrier.
Both Roelofs and Platt remained in serious condition Sunday, after having been moved out of the Intensive Care Unit on Saturday at St. Louis University Hospital, said Laura Keller, a hospital spokeswoman. The two men had been admitted in critical condition.
The driver of the vehicle that crossed the median, 16-year-old Bethany Budwell, was killed in the accident.
