Chicago students injured in car crash caught on camera

A group of Chicago students were injured in a horrible crash near Springfield last Friday.

One of the students recorded the incident on his cell-phone.

15-year-old Jemarious Gordon says he felt the van start to shake, so he started recording.

A few moments later, the van left the road, apparently from a blown tire.

The students were on a trip with a local faith-based group, heading to St Louis to do charitable work for senior citizens.

13 people were in the van when the accident happened.  Nine had to be rushed to the hospital.

Jamarius is recovering at home after breaking bones in his back.

He tells WGN News his cousin is still in intensive care with severe brain injuries.
