(ANGOLA) - An Angola High School student who is a member of the boys basketball team escaped serious injuries Thursday night in a crash involving his S.U.V. and a semi at U.S. 20 and 100 East by Angola High School. Angola Police say the crash happened at about 7:37pm but further information was not available Friday morning. The semi wound up in a nearby cornfield while the S.U.V. sustained heavy damage after apparently being struck on the passenger side.
Angola Varsity Boys Basketball Coach Ed Bentley said on the teams Twitter account that Hunter Kohart was fine and that he "was moving his extremities, talking and was remembering everything."
Bentley later said on Twitter that Kohart was in good spirits and was being kept overnight at a Fort Wayne hospital for observation. Kohart was later released.
