Konawa Junior High Softball Player Killed In Tragic Bus Crash

It is with great sadness we report that Rhindi Isaacs was killed and six others injured in a head-on collision Friday night.

An SUV was allegedly driven by a drunk driver when the vehicle struck the bus carrying six Konawa Junior High School softball players and their coach in Oklahoma on U.S. 377. 

The driver of the SUV and the passenger were pronounced dead at the scene.

"...they were hit head-on by a drunk driver," said the school's Superintendent Cory Ellis in a statement released on Saturday.

"It is absolutely devastating for our community and especially the family," Konawa High School principal Karis Reavis said. "They had played Okemah [a town one hour northeast of Konowa] and were returning to Konawa."

The names and ages of all the softball players, including the girl who died, have not been released, according to the state highway patrol.

A prayer vigil will begin at 6 p.m. on Sunday in the Performing Arts Center and two local banks, Sooner State Bank and Bancfirst, will be opening accounts to receive donations beginning Monday, March 11, the superintendent announced.
