Victims of Colorado Car Crash Were Returning From Denver March Pow Wow

An SUV carrying seven people who were returning home from the Denver March Pow Wow crashed on a Colorado highway on Wednesday, officials said. All the passengers are still alive, but three were thrown from the car.

According to the Associated Press, the 26-year-old driver, Kyle Henderson, was the only passenger wearing his seatbelt when the vehicle hit an ice patch, then drifted into the median, and rolled at least two times before stopping, the State Patrol said.

The five teen students and a teacher from the McLaughlin School in South Dakota were on their way back with Henderson to the Standing Rock Reservation when the accident occurred. All seven, some whose names have not been released, were hospitalized at the Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland, and Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins.

“It’s been a big shock to our community,” tribal spokesman D.J. Two Bears told KXMB-TV in Bismarck, North Dakota. "So a lot of people have been praying and hoping for the best. Hearts are a little sad right now, so [we're] just hoping for the safety and well-being of the children and staff members."

The school flew some administrators and family members to Colorado after the crash and made counselors available at the school for students and staff, KELO reported.

Everett Jamerson, who is related to one of the students involved in the crash, said he attended a prayer service at the school Monday and spoke with students, the AP said.

The crash occurred on Interstate 25, about 16 miles south of the Wyoming border.
