August 21, 2022

It is with great sorrow that Indiana State University announces that police are working to positively identify three people who died in a single-vehicle accident early Sunday morning. 

Police said there were five people total in the vehicle. They are all believed to be ISU students, including several football players.

“This is a terrible tragedy," ISU President Dr. Deborah J. Curtis said. "As we are waiting on additional details from authorities investigating this accident, our hearts go out to the families and friends of the students involved.”

The ISU women’s soccer match scheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday at Memorial Stadium has been postponed to a later date because of the tragedy.

Counseling services are available for students, faculty, and staff at 812-237-3939. 

More information will be released as it becomes available.
