Marcos Dominguez, the 15-year-old Imperial boy who suffered head injuries when the stolen car in which he was a passenger crashed last month, has been upgraded to serious condition.
University of California San Diego Medical Center officials said this morning Marcos' life is no longer considered in danger, although they said he remains "very ill."
For more than two weeks after the accident Marcos was in critical condition.
There was no new information today on the charges against another 15-year-old Imperial boy reported to have been driving the vehicle.
A county District Attorney's Office official declined to release information on charges against the youth or whether the boy remained in juvenile hall. The official said because it is a juvenile matter he cannot release details about the case.
