A 16-year-old girl is in critical condition after she was blinded during an accident in Michigan.
Her aunt said the teen, who was not identified, suffered a head injury when her car rolled onto a concrete embankment during a thunderstorm in the city of Flint.
The teen was driving along a road on Interstate 75 when the car she was in struck a tree.
The car rolled on its side and rolled on the embankments before flipping over and hitting a brick wall, her aunt, Tiffany DeLaRosa, told the Flint Journal-MLive.
DeLaRosaid the girl was driving with her friends on a summer weekend when the accident happened.
The girl’s father told the paper that he did not know his daughter was in critical care, adding that she was “extremely fortunate” to have survived.
She was flown to a hospital for treatment.
“She had a very small hole in her head, which could have caused her brain to shut down,” DeLaSor said.
De LaSor added that she had no idea if the accident was a result of a car crash or the teens reckless driving.
“I don’t think that she would have been in that condition,” De LaSora said.
The boy was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, but he is expected to survive.
