One Teacher and Two Students Set to Return Home After Accident

Posted: Updated:

School officials from McLaughlin say that one staff member and two students have been released from the hospital and will return to home Thursday.

This is following a rollover crash in Colorado Monday morning, that involved five students and two teachers from the McLaughlin School District.

A release from the elementary principal says that the students and teachers were returning home after attending the Denver March Powwow when the accident happened along I-25 near Ft. Collins.

Three were ejected from the vehicle, and some serious injuries were reported.

According to the school, family members of the students and staff have been flown to hospitals in Ft. Collins and Loveland, and the school superintendent and principal are also there.

Patrol troopers in Colorado confirm that the driver of the SUV lost control of the vehicle on the icy roadway, but say they do not know if speed was a factor in the crash.

Trooper Nate Reid with the Colorado State Patrol also says that charges are pending, but no charges have been filed yet in relation to the crash.

A lot of people in the Dakotas and beyond are praying for the families and friends of the people involved in the crash, even through social media.

More than one thousand people have liked the facebook page, "Prayers for McLaughlin School Staff and Students".

It was created by the Bear Soldier District Community family members.

A prayer service was conducted at the school Monday, and school officials say counselors are available to talk with staff and students as needed.

To show support, many students and staff on the Standing Rock Reservation are wearing orange and black.

Orange and black are McLaughlin school colors.

According to a school press release, one staff member and two students will return to McLaughlin Thursday.

Meanwhile, several benefits have been organized for families of the injured.
