St. John's Medical Center: All students treated here are being released

All of the students treated at St. John's Medical Center in Creve Coeur have been released from the hospital.  As of 3:30 p.m., none remained at the facility.

Shortly after the wreck, St. John's Medical Center in Creve Coeur accepted six patients. One was in critical condition and later transferred by medical helicopter to Children's Hospital in St. Louis.  The rest were released to their parents.

St. John's spokeswoman Bethany Pope did not elaborate on their conditions, but we do know the students are among the "walking wounded" and were treated for cuts and bruises.

Pope said the hospital did not expect to receive any new patients injured in this crash.

We have been told the patients range in age from 13-16. All were on the buses traveling from St. James, Missouri to Six Flags in Eureka. The students were on a band camp day trip and heading to the park when the crash happened at 10:15 a.m. in the east-bound lanes of I-44, near the exit for Washington, Missouri.

News 4 is stationed near the entrance of St. John's emergency room getting the latest updates on the students. We'll continue to monitor their progress.
