Head-On Crash Kills Boone Co. High School Student
BOONE COUNTY, Ind. -- A Western Boone High School student was killed in a head-on crash Thursday morning in Boone County, Indiana.
The crash happened on State Road 32, near 250 W., and involved two vehicles, according to the Boone County Sheriff's Office.
Police say a 2007 white Ford Focus was traveling eastbound on SR 32 at around 6:40 a.m. Three students at Western Boone High School were inside, on their way to J. Everitt Light Vocational School in Indianapolis.
For an unknown reason, a 2003 gray Acura crossed into the eastbound lanes and struck the Focus head-on. 18-year-old Sydney Foster was taken to Methodist Hospital, where she died from her injuries. She was in the backseat of the Focus with a seatbelt on, police say.
Foster was a four-year member of the girls' soccer team and and active member of 4-H, the school organization said.
Police initially said four other people were hospitalized, but later said four total people were taken to hospitals. Neither drugs nor alcohol are believed to be a factor.
No further information is available.
