BOSTON (AP) - The parents of a Boston University student injured in a one-vehicle crash in New Zealand that took the lives of three other students say their daughter is recovering after surgery and is in intensive care.
Todd and Deb Theriault of Boston said in a statement that their 21-year-old daughter, Meg, suffered a serious head injury, a broken right arm and grazes over her body. They say she is getting "the best care" at Waikato Hospital in New Zealand.
Four others also were injured in the Saturday crash. Two have been released from the hospital. Two others were in stable condition.
The country's prime minister, John Key, called the crash "a great tragedy" and sent his sympathies to the families. The students were heading to Tongariro Crossing for a hike.
