Southwestern High School has canceled tonight’s basketball game against South Decatur — which was also the Rebels’ homecoming — due to the death of one of its student in a car crash Thursday afternoon on SR 256 at Thompson Road.

Tyler Cooley, 18, of Hanover, was a passenger in a car crash that killed two passengers and seriously injured the driver. Cooley was a senior at Southwestern.

Athletic Director Tom Scroggins issued the following statement: “Due to the tragic death of one of our students, Southwestern has canceled all activities for today, and that includes our homecoming game tonight vs. South Decatur. We will try and make this game up, but do not have a date at this time.”
