A Brighton High School student who was hurt in a serious car crash is speaking and has a message for other teens.
"I was very lucky to get out of the car with only these things [scars and stitches on face] as opposed to those who are still in the hospital right now," said Kevin Thapa, 16.
He and the driver, John Zakhary, 16, were released from the hospital.
Two other passengers remain in the hospital as of Wednesday night.
Brighton freshman Christa Mickol was upgraded to satisfactory condition.
Junior Scott Collins was in guarded condition.
Collins was trapped in the car for about 40 minutes until crews could lift the school bus off of the car.
At the scene on Warren Avenue, skid marks are all that mark the crash that happened.
Thapa said he doesn't remember much about what happened before the crash.
"All I know is that we were driving and we hit a bus and then I just passed out," said Thapa.
Thapa said he woke up and saw his friend, Christa, hurt.
He says the last thing he remembers is being taken away in an ambulance.
Police say witnesses saw the car traveling faster than the 25-mile-per-hour posted speed limit.
Also, state law does not allow drivers under 18 to have more than one person under 21 riding with them.
"If it turns out that there were occupants that shouldn't have been in that vehicle that there was a junior driver, we certainly would take appropriate action at that time," said Chief Mark Henderson, Brighton Police.
Zakhary has not been charged.
Police say the investigation is ongoing as they reconstruct the accident scene.
Kevin Thapa says he worries about his friends but has a message for others.
"Just be careful who you get in a car with, make sure that they are an experienced driver and just trust your parents," said Thapa.
