By Laura Gossman

Seven Century High School students were injured Wednesday night in a two-car crash on 37th Street Northeast at East River Road.

Four boys and two girls were in a vehicle that collided in the intersection with a car occupied by two teenagers about 8:50 p.m.

According to police Lt. Dan Muyres, the driver of the first vehicle, 17-year-old Mitchell James Cada, was seriously injured and had to be extricated from the car. He was taken to Saint Marys Hospital; his condition was not available this morning.


Four passengers, Alyssa Joy Fetterly, 18, William Isaac Shillingford, 18, Bricelyn Susanna Sigrist, 17, and Justin Wade Threat, 18, were taken by ambulance to Saint Marys Hospital with minor injuries. One passenger was not injured.

Injuries to the occupants of the other vehicle appeared to be minor, Muyres said.

Muyres said Cada was northbound on East River Road when he went through a red light at 37th Street.

The other vehicle was in the left-hand eastbound lane and hit the back of Cada’s car. Cada’s car spun across all lanes into a utility pole.

Police temporarily shut down the westbound lanes of 37th Street. Muyres said no citations or charges have been filed.
