MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Three children injured in the Waukesha Christmas Parade crash will be able to go home for Thanksgiving as they recover from their injuries, Children’s Wisconsin announced Wednesday.

The hospital noted 10 children are still being cared for.

Five children are in critical condition, two are in fair condition and three are in good condition.

There is one fewer child in critical condition currently, one fewer in fair and one fewer in good condition from the day before.

The hospital also noted Tuesday that an 8-year-old boy had died of his injuries, giving its “deepest sympathy and sorrow.” Jackson Sparks passed away Tuesday, according to a post from Life Point Church on Facebook and an update shared on a GoFundMe fundraiser. He was walking in the parade along with his brother.
