Student athletes hit by truck in Moore; one dead”

According to the news outlet, at around 3:30 p.m., the red pickup truck had hit the students near the Moore High School's field house area, located in the 1000 block of East Main street.

Townsend's son, Cody Townsend, had died in a crash on Sunday afternoon in Moore, KFOR Channel 4 reports. Three of the students are in critical condition. He also struck several vehicles, authorities added.

Police said Cody was driving east on Northeast 12th Street when he rear-ended a auto, which caused his own vehicle to flip over, killing him, reported KOCO.

"Please keep the students, staff, and our families in your thoughts", Moore High School Principal Mike Coyle said in an email to parents obtained by the station.

The school district announced a trauma team from the Oklahoma State Department of Education will be at the school Tuesday.

Officials say Yuridia Martinez, Joseph White, Kolby Crum, Shiloh Hutchison, and Ashton Baza were hit and Rachel Freeman was killed. "Tonight we pray for the Moore community and stand ready to assist in any way we can". Authorities said that one of the students has died.

Student Kolby Crum remained in critical condition at Oklahoma Children's Hospital, according to spokeswoman April Sandefer. "Our sympathies are with the Freeman family during this time". All students will be informed of the accident and of Rachel's passing by their first hour teacher tomorrow. "We want to help".
