The other CP students were the driver, 17 year old Hailey Ussery, who suffered broken ankles and a back injury, and her 14 year old brother, Loyd, who suffered a compoung leg fracture. The driver of the other car is reported to be 22 year old Brittany Lamana Michelli, who suffered abdominal injuries and is in critical condition.

Deputies believe the vehicle traveling westbound on Denham, driven by a 17-year-old girl, may have crossed the center line of the road and hit the other vehicle, traveling eastbound, driven by a 22-year-old woman. Two boys, both 14, were passengers in the vehicle driven by the 17-year-old girl. Deputies believe neither boys were wearing seatbelt restraints. The 22-year-old woman was alone in her vehicle.
All four were transported to the hospital. The boy seated in the front seat of the first vehicle and the 22-year-old driver of the second vehicle were transported with life-threatening injuries.  Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in this accident. Investigation is pending.
