I'm right behind thiswall." Bornais said she ran out of the building to investigate and saw thewrecked car and its four occupants: all young males in Catholichigh school uniforms. According to Bornais, three of the youthful occupants were climbingout of the wreckage, but the fourth — a backseat passenger— seemed stuck.
