St. Ignatius prepares to hold Mass in honor of 16 hockey players killed in bus crash in Indiana

WARSAW, Indiana — Sixteen students at St. Ignatius College Preparatory was wounded, three critically, after a semi truck crashed into their school bus during a hockey trip in northern Indiana.

Victor Santos, a Brooklyn resident and semi-truck driver, failed a field sobriety test and was taken into custody. He faces a DUI charge and may face additional charges.

The crash happened Saturday around 8:00 p.m. at the intersection of US Route 30 and Center Street in Warsaw, Indiana, when the St. The Ignatius JV was returning to their hotel after completing a tournament in Culver, Indiana.

Police said a school bus carrying students collided with a semi-trailer whose driver was seen swerving and speeding before the crash. The bus came to the side, and the semi-trailer ended up in a ditch.

The school bus was carrying 26 people, including hockey players, teachers and coaches, and one student was ejected when the bus turned onto Center Street from the eastbound left turn lane during the crash. Of the 23 students on the bus, 16 were injured, three in serious condition. One of the seriously injured has been discharged from the hospital. The other two will remain in the hospital for at least three more days.

Ignatia on Monday at 15.00 a mass will be held in honor of the JV hockey players and their families.

The school has received several messages of support and well wishes from members of the community, including Chicago Blackhawks and Cardinal Blaze Joseph Cupich.

Warsaw police said more information regarding the charges against Santos may be released on Monday. According to the police, the accident was recorded by a surveillance video camera.
