Wilmington teen crash investigation continues; drugs, alcohol ruled out

Will County officials report none of the four Wilmington teens who died earlier this month in a car crash had any trace of drugs or alcohol in their system.

The Sheriff’s office and the Coroner’s office are working with the Illinois State police to re-create the accident. It was March 11 when the car the teens were in crashed thru a guardrail and ran into an icy creek near Wilmington.

The Will County Coroner's office has already ruled all four deaths a drowning. The victims were 15-year-old Cody Carter, 14-year-old Matthew Bailey, 15-year-old Micalah Sembach, and 17-year-old Cheyenne Fender. All were from Wilmington and pronounced dead at the scene. They were found the following day.

The vehicle landed in Forked Creek along Ballou Road, just west of Warner Bridge Road.
