Just hours after their first appearance in Bands of America's Grand National Finals, the Castle High School Marching Knights (Newburgh, IN) lost two band members and their mother in a car accident on the way home.

Quote:
CASTLE BAND FAMILY

With incredibly heavy hearts, it saddens us to confirm that the Rinehart family and the Castle Band Family suffered a tragedy on the way home from Indianapolis. David Rinehart, his mother, and Sophie Rinehart were taken from our world in a car accident. Josie is in the hospital in Bloomington.

More information will follow throughout the day as we are communicating with the principals, counselors and the Warrick County School people that work on situations like this.

Monday beginning of school - There will be counselors who specialize in this type of grief to meet with students.

Please be respectful to their family in the upcoming days through social media posts.

Please hug, cry, laugh, sing, and pray for each other today..and the next day...and every day.

Mr. Dean and Mr. Eifler

It was actually one student (the featured vocalist) along with her father and grandmother.

I saw another story indicating dad was a preacher...probably the reason for their timeline of travel.
