Trip home from New Zealand begins for two BU students
Driver released, passenger let out of N. Zealand hospital
Two Boston University students are making their way back to the United States after being involved in a deadly crash while studying abroad in New Zealand last month. The crash, which killed three other BU students, left Meg Theriault of Salisbury in critical condition. After a month in intensive care, she flew back to Boston on Wednesday. Meanwhile, 20-year-old Stephen Houseman pleaded guilty to seven counts of careless driving, but was given no jail time by a New Zealand judge.
