Teens killed in Will County crash identified
The four teens killed in a car crash in Will County have been identified.
According to the Will County Coroner, 15-year-old Cody Carter, 14-year-old Matthew J. Bailey, 15-year-old Micalah E. Sembach and 17-year-old Cheyenne Fender were killed when the car they were in plunged into a creek.
All four teens are from Wilmington.
Their car was discovered in Forked Creek on Ballou Road at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. A guard rail on the road appears to have been knocked down. It also appears the creek was swollen with melting snow, and the small bridge over the creek may have been underwater or at the very least icy and treacherous.
They left their homes Monday evening, and at about midnight, one of them was reported missing.
