On Saturday March 7th, the New Castles gymnastics team was on their way to Regionals to compete. Unfortunately, their bus was involved in a head on crash with an SUV on I-70. All of the students from New Castle were released with no serious injuries, and an assistant coach was taken to the hospital because of some rib pain. The driver of the SUV was trapped in the car and then was flown to IU Methodist by helicopter. It is unknown what the condition of the SUV driver was, or is still. Indiana State Police say it’s going to be an outgoing investigation. The gymnastics competition is being postponed for Monday, March 9th at 7pm.
