Nice linkbait. Upgraded to what? Would it have been that hard to put "to serious condition" in the headline?

"Police confirmed Tuesday night that alcohol was not a factor in the accident." Funny how there is no such thing as a careless accident when alcohol is a factor. It all of a sudden would've been crime, there would've been one hundred plus readers comments with pitchforks raised and someone would've had to burn for it. Point being, no matter the circumstances why can't people accept the fact kids do dumb things (including experimenting with alcohol) and just be happy she'll eventually be okay?
