    I hope they will be alright and fully recover. I feel bad for the guy that died.

    Has there been any report yet of what caused the crash? That was a lot of people to get hurt and I hope it was more than just an accident. Yes accidents do happen, but sometimes its due to neglect.

    This is a extremely sad and tragic event.

    Our hearts go out to all involved and their families.

    I can't imagine the affect of something like this on the town. You know it will effect far more than just the families of the wrestlers. I know when my school lost two members of the football team due to a weekend accident, it was devastating to the entire school on several levels.

    I am from a small town near this school. The good news is all the kids are doing better than when they went in, meaning they are recovering. Most of them have serious injuries but over time the should make a full recovery.
