Mishra is said to have injuries to his brain and spine and is in a coma. He evidently can move the right side of his body but not by command and doctors will wait until the fluid on his brain leaves before they can get a better evaluation of the long term injuries. Thapa is listed as having various injuries to his brain, neck and stomach and will probably have move surgery. All of the young men are reported to be Bhutanese refugees, students in the Jefferson County School District and members of a community soccer team. They all attended different high schools within the school district.
The investigation into the crash is still very young and there has been information as to what may have caused the driver to cross the tracks in front of the moving train. I am sure that investigators are hoping that both young men survive their injuries and will be able to shed light on what happened in those final seconds before the train hit them. Unfortunately, the conductor of that train will have to live the fact that he was involved in this crash through no fault of his own.
