DANVILLE, Ind. — Danville police confirm two people were killed in a crash late Monday afternoon.

The collision happened around 5:30 p.m. on Cartersburg Road around Hendricks County Road 200 South.

The Hendricks County coroner identified the two victims as 23-year-old Bryce Thomas King and 26-year-old Abigail Scheibelhut. King was an assistant football coach at Cascade High School.

In a Facebook post, the team said he had been coaching with them for a year and that he "left a tremendous impact on our program and players." The team also said all players will be made aware of arrangements once those details are finalized.

With heavy hearts, we are sad to announce that Bryce King, one of our assistant coaches at Cascade Hs passed away...
