A teenager who survived the Minnesota bridge collapse is now believed to have joined ISIS in Syria and may have used his payout from the accident to pay for weddings and cars for other fighters.

Mohamed Roble, now 18, who was on a school bus that plunged 30ft off the I-35W bridge in 2007, is thought to have traveled to Syria via Istanbul in fall last year in order to live with his uncle.

Roble is believed to have made the trip just a month an a half after his 18th birthday, when he was due to receive at least $65,000 for injuries he suffered during the accident.

According to court testimony from three other Minnesota men on trial for attempting to join ISIS, Roble was part of a group attempting to travel to the Middle East and join the terrorist organization.

The men said that the group were aware that Roble had access to money and were pressuring him into paying for their own trips, though it appears they were unsuccessful.

But in one conversation secretly recorded by an FBI informant, defendant Guled Omar, 21, revealed that after Roble arrived in Syria he was handing out cash ‘like candy’.

Omar told the informant that Roble had paid for weddings and cars for other fighters while living with his uncle, a man called Abdi Nur.

The men spoke on Skype with both Roble and Nur while they were in Syria, while another witness said the teen’s Facebook account was filled with images of guns and other fighters.

He also regularly wrote about how he felt blessed to be in ‘sharm’, a Koranic term used for an area of the Middle East that includes Syria.
