Student struck by car awakes from coma

A 13-year-old high school freshman, who was struck by a car while practicing for his school cross country team, has awoken from a coma. The boy suffered two broken legs and a closed head injury in the accident.

The 13-year-old was one of two members of the Chelsea High School cross country team who were struck by a vehicle while running earlier this month. The Chelsea Police Department and the School District are cooperating in an investigation of the incident. The County Sheriff's office is also conducting a separate traffic investigation.

The head injury required medical staff to remove a portion of the boy's skull to reduce the risk from internal pressure on his brain. On a Facebook page set up to provide information and support for the boy, his father indicated that the brain injury was more severe than initially thought. The boy has been moved from the University of Michigan Health System Trauma Center to a rehabilitation facility where he is expected to remain for at least a month. The boy's father also said that they had already taught their son how to walk once before, implying that they anticipate having to do so once again.

Because of the expense of the medical and rehabilitative care that will be required, several fundraisers have been organized. The family is also accepting donations.

Prior to the accident the High School cross country teams had regularly ran on area roads before and after school prior to a competition. The school district has now indicated that it will no longer use area roads for cross country team training in the pre-dawn or hours or after dusk.
