Stony Creek crash survivors' conditions improve


SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Two 17-year-old boys who survived a deadly crash Friday at Stony Creek Metropark are improving.

Both were listed in critical condition at Henry Ford Hospital in Clinton Township. However, a hospital spokesperson said Wednesday one of the boys has been discharged and the other's condition has been upgraded from critical to serious.

In all, five teenage boys were in a speeding Jaguar that landed in the Stony Creek River on Friday evening. The crash killed three 17-year-olds: Jonathan Manolios and Emanuel Malaj of Sterling Heights and Michael Wells of Macomb Township.

The crash remains under investigation. Police believe alcohol may have been a factor.

All five boys attended the Utica Community Schools district.
