As a GC resident away for the holidays, it'd be great to read some (any) details on the people involved. This "article" is simply the photographs' captions repurposed word-for-word. Who was at fault? Is there an investigation? Were drugs or alcohol involved? Were any drivers unlicensed/underaged? Were those involved GC residents? How old? What are the nature of the injuries? Is it Patch policy to be purposefully vague? Most articles do seem to be so.
