I Double Dog Dare You!

Quote:
A 17-year-old St. Charles North student was in critical condition Monday after he jumped out of a moving car as part of a scavenger hunt dare.

Kane County deputies were called at 10:18 p.m. Friday to an accident near Old Homestead and Mallard Lake roads, according to a Kane County sheriff’s report. When police arrived, there were two cars facing west on Mallard Lake and the teen was laying in the center of the road, police said.

Task force investigates why teen jumped from car

The teen was unconscious with shallow breathing and a puddle of blood under his head, police said. Four girls — at least some of them in a Dodge Durango the teen had been riding in — left the scene shortly after police arrived but before medics were there, police said.

The friends were all involved in a scavenger hunt that had a list of tasks that could be completed for points, police said. One of the items was to jump from a car moving 25 mph, police said.

One former St. Charles North student said the scavenger hunt has been a tradition for at least three years. Students made a list of dares they were supposed to film for points. Past dares included making out with a stranger, chugging maple syrup and getting kicked in the testicles by a stranger.

The people in the car thought 25 mph was too fast, and they planned to take a photo of the speedometer at 25 mph, then slow down to 10 or 15 mph, according to the report. The teen jumped without giving any notice, police said.

Police said they did not believe drinking or drugs were involved in the accident. All the teens are St. Charles North students, police said. None were identified in the report.

The injured teen was taken to Delnor Community Hospital, where police also talked to other people in the car.

The Kane County state’s attorney’s office has taken the unusual step of calling a special grand jury to investigate the accident and the scavenger hunt. Kane County State’s Attorney John Barsanti said this is the first time a special a grand jury has been called since a February 2005 brawl in Plato Township that left one student dead.

Barsanti said he has heard that as many as 75 people participated in the scavenger hunt and there could be more than 100 witnesses involved. He said it does not appear that any employees of the school district sponsored or organized the scavenger hunt.

The grand jury gives prosecutors the leeway to offer immunity to witnesses and have witnesses sworn in under oath, with the penalty of perjury.

However, Barsanti is not sure if any crime has been committed. If the student jumped voluntarily, “it’s probably not is not a crime,” Barsanti said.

Prosecutors hope the grand jury will give them some answers: Why did the teen jump and what was happening before he jumped?

“It’s not clear whether there is a crime here or not,” Barsanti said.

Anyone with information should call Kane County detective Jerry Krawczyk at (630) 208-5353.

St. Charles North students are not in school this week. Monday and Tuesday are set for parent-teacher conferences; Wednesday is an institute day. The school is closed Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving.

Still, the director of school and community relations, Jim Blaney, said counselors and psychologists are available at the school for anyone who needs them. The school is conducting its own investigation into the incident, Blaney said.

St. Charles North principal Kim Zupec has been in touch with the injured student’s parents several times since the accident, Blaney said.

“The main thing is we’re concerned about is the well-being of the student,” Blaney said. “Our thoughts and best wishes go out to him and his family.”

I agree 100%. Not every bad or stupid thing that happens has to be a crime, sometimes people just do stupid stuff. There is nothing more dangerous than an overzealous prosecutor.

i agree, sounds to me like kids being kids...I mean he was in a car with 4 HS chicks...who wouldn't jump ( i would need more descriptive details of the females b4 i can make a decision )

But other than that, people are always looking for someone else to blame for this stuff, can't we just realize, the kid jumped out of a car, got hurt, too bad for him, but that is it...there isn't always some giant conspiracy to ruin the youth.

And i wish schools would get off their high horse and get a grasp on reality...imo the schools jurisdiction is at the school. that is it. It's the parents job everywhere else. I bet this kid and all the kids involved in this hunt are gonna get a suspension or the like, even thought it happened outside of school.

minor counter-point to myself: I think schools do this stuff because they think parents do nothing when their kids are away from school, so they see it fit to punish/ take corrective measure on these kids to compensate.

I'm shocked the kid got hurt jumping out of the car going 25 mph. Think about it the kid must have fallen out of the dumb as dog shit tree and hit every branch on the way down earlier that day, and survived to jump from a car.

well whoever set up the scavenger hunt is going to be in deep shit. But the kid was just stupid. Hopefully the kid will pull through with no issues. I did stupid shit like that myself along with some of my other friends also. Kids will be kids. But the parents of the injured kid just might have a legal case against the parents of the kid who set it up.

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

Hopefully the parents won't seek anything. Realize kids will be kids, and their kid was acting on free will. As long as he wasn't pushed, in that case they should go after, those involved in the pushing.

Hope he recovers quickly.

dont they know you can do this you just have to protect your dome.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

I was thinking the same thing.

Cover that head up with your arms.

I hope the kid recovers. He'll have a good story to tell and hopefully one of those girls will give him a piece. I mean we've all done dumb stuff and have seen dumb stuff... this isn't one of the worst things a kid has done.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Glad I didn't go to court every time I did something stupid.

As for going to court, I think it is going there because 911 was called with emergency crew dispatched because of something stupid. I think they want to investigate if they can reduce stupid teenage acts. They'll just wait until they're older.

poor kid, stupid teenage decision.
probably trying to impress the girls and went for it

ive taken spills at 25+ on a bicycle(hurts alot but ive been lucky enough to be able to have walked away from all of em), and the helmet has definately safed my life more than once, the visors on mtb helmets do indeed provide more protection than just shading your eyes from the sun
