JENKS, Okla. -- Purcell crash victim, Izzy Kitterman, returned to Green Country but just for the day.

According to her Facebook page "Spreading and Sharing Love for Izzy Kitterman", the teen was in Jenks today doing a home and school evaluation. She was reportedly very excited.

Jenks Public Schools could not say what the evaluation entailed because of Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. 

This was the first time Izzy Kitterman had been home since she went to Turner Falls on July 17. 

The 13-year old was involved in a crash that claimed four lives. The SUV she was in crashed into an 18-wheeler on Interstate 35 north. The driver of the SUV, Erin Van Horn, and her son, Zach, were killed. Step-siblings Lizzie Edwards and Beck Kitterman also died. Izzy Kitterman and Lauren and Sam Van Horn survived. 

Kitterman is staying at a rehab facility in Bethany where she is working to regain movement. 

According to her Facebook page, the plan is for Izzy Kitterman to return to Jenks in November and start outpatient treatment. The page says she is putting in the work to get back home.
