Jake Burnside's family reported that his condition has been upgraded to serious, and that he is awake, responding to questions and speaking.

Burnside, 16, of Fremont, was injured in a traffic accident on June 3. He was flown by medical helicopter to Creighton where he was listed in critical condition. Three other Fremont teens died as a result of the accident.

"He's moving his arms and both his legs, which leads us to be very hopeful," his parents, Carter and Karen Burnside, said in a statement issued through the Creighton University Medical Center public affairs office this morning.

"Doctors are hoping to get him into a rehabilitation program at Madonna (Rehabilitation Center) as soon as possible," the statement said.
