Homecoming activities at a northwest Iowa high school have been postponed in the wake of a deadly car crash. School officials at Sioux Central have moved homecoming activities, originally planned to begin this Friday, to the week of October 13-17.
The decision comes after an accident this week that claimed the lives of 17-year-old Caleb Smith of Sioux Rapids and 16-year-old Lexi Rydstrom of Marathon. Smith’s car struck a pickup head on east of Storm Lake. Four others were injured.
Smith and Rydstrom were both students at Sioux Central High School in Sioux Rapids.
