A 17-year-old Barrington High School senior from South Barrington is in stable condition after a one-vehicle accident in Barrington Hills Monday afternoon.

The boy was transported by helicopter for medical treatment after his vehicle struck a retaining wall near the intersection of routes 68 and 59 at 3:18 p.m., according to Barrington Countryside Fire Protection District officials.

The student suffered two broken legs, two broken femurs and a facial fracture, but his injuries are not being considered life-threatening, District 220 spokesman Jeff Arnett said.

The school district is not identifying the student at this time.

Barrington Hills police also responded to the collision but were unable to provide any further information Monday night.
