PARK HILLS, KY (FOX19) - The Notre Dame Academy student severely injured in a spring break car accident is due to come home from a Georgia hospital soon.

A web site detailing Jessie Russo's progress, Caringbridge.Org, stated she is coming home to Park Hills this week.

On April 16, Russo and seven of her friends were involved in a car crash while traveling through Alabama. 

The crash killed Jessie's friend and classmate Maria Schaffstein.

Russo has been recovering from a head injury she sustained in that crash at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta.

On Wednesday, St. Agnes Church in Park Hills put up a welcome home message for Russo, in anticipation of her arrival.
