Purdue student from Chanhassen dies in car accident
A Chanhassen teenager was killed Saturday when the van carrying him and seven other members of the Purdue ice hockey club team rolled on an ice-covered highway in Indiana.
Andrew Jackson, 18, of Chanhassen, was a freshman studying engineering at Purdue.
According to the Indianapolis Star, the seven other students were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local hospital and released Sunday.
According to the Associated Press, the 20-member team was traveling in three separate vehicles. The other two vans reportedly did not see the accident.
The team was traveling to Danville, Ill., when the van crashed about 20 miles west of West Lafayette, Ind., according to the Associated Press.
