One of the five wrestlers injured in a fatal crash Saturday in northwest Iowa has been released from the hospital. A spokesperson at Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City says 18-year-old Jordan Mitchell of Sloan has been dismissed from the hospital.
Meanwhile, 16-year-old Adam Greeno of Salix has been upgraded from guarded to fair condition. Three other wrestlers and their coach from Westwood High School remain hospitalized at Mercy Medical. Sixteen-year-old Trent Baker and 15-year old Blake Jorgensen, both of Sloan, are listed in critical condition. Coach Daniel Thompson, who is 26, and 16-year-old Sage Washburn of Hornick are both listed in fair condition.
The coach and wrestlers were on their way to a wrestling clinic Saturday morning when their SUV collided with a minivan on Highway 141 near Hornick. The driver of the van, 53-year-old Bradley Haburn of Spencer, was pronounced dead at the scene. According to school officials, Haburn was the father of a Westwood High School student. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
