Saint Ignatius College Prep Hockey Team Involved in Indiana Bus Crash
Warsaw, Indiana – On the evening of Saturday, November 12, 2022, Saint Ignatius College Prep‘s hockey team members were involved in a serious bus crash involving a semi-truck while on their way back from a game at Culver Academies. 23 student-athletes and 2 coaches were onboard during this collision that took place in Northern Indiana.
As reported by NBC CHICAGO, The semi-truck driver, Victor Santos of Brooklyn, New York, ran a red light, causing the bus to overturn. Santos continued west of the accident, eventually driving off of the roadway and into a ditch. Earlier that evening, there were reports of a semi-truck “speeding” and “swerving” into other lanes, according to Warsaw police. A total of 13 students were injured during this crash, three of which were transported to Fort Wayne Lutheran Hospital and Lutheran Kosciusko County in critical condition. The other 10 students were treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released at the scene.
Santos was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after police reportedly smelled alcohol on his breath. After failing a sobriety test and refusing to take a chemical test at the scene, Santos was taken into custody. He is being held on preliminary charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated causing serious bodily injury. Fortunately, the three students who sustained critical injuries were upgraded to stable condition by Sunday morning, though they all still remain in the trauma center.
