Two students injured in a car crash April 2 are both currently in stable condition, Memorial Hospital reported Sunday afternoon.
Notre Dame junior Jack Riedy and Saint Mary’s junior Mary Gring were with Scott Gring, a South Bend resident and Mary’s father, heading east on a bridge over the St. Joseph River near Niles, Mich. Scott Gring, the vehicle’s driver, lost control on the icy road and spun across the center line, crashing into a westbound car.

While emergency responders were attempting to extricate Riedy and Mary Gring from the vehicle, another eastbound vehicle lost control and struck a fire truck protecting the scene, which was pushed into the Gring car with the students still inside it.
All three people in the Gring vehicle were taken to Memorial Hospital in South Bend. As of Sunday afternoon, all three of their conditions were reported as stable, according to the hospital.
