Car crash involving 5 INSU students, 3 have died, and several of the people in the car were football players. I don't know anything more than what's in the linked article, so we don't know which players were involved, but I do know that former Leatherneck Michael Ross had just transferred to Indiana State. Either way, keep them and their family and friends in your thoughts.

Looks like that is correct. He was from Lakota East HS in Liberty Township, OH (a bit north of Cincinnati).

Update with names: https://gosycamores.com/news/2022/8/22/ ... eased.aspx

Five people in the car, four were on the football team. The three deceased were two football players and the non-football playing student. Two other football players are out of intensive care but are still in serious condition.
