Shelbyville High School is grieving this week as they’ve lost one of their own in a fatal car crash. On Saturday afternoon, a 17-year old student from Shelbyville High School was driving his Honda Accord in the Westbound lanes of Interstate-74. He lost control of his car and crossed over the center line in the median of the highway. His car drove into oncoming traffic and was hit by another vehicle.
The car that hit the Accord was a 2019 Nissan Murano driven by 85-year old Carl Walton of Indianapolis. His wife, Lillie was in the car along with another woman named Angela Harvey. All three of them were taken to the local hospital with injuries.
Nolan Parker was a senior at Shelbyville High School. He was one of the best soccer players in the state of Indiana. His coaches said he was posed to go on to college and play the sport. The other two people in the Honda Accord with Parker were also high school athletes.
Parker, along with the other teens were taken to the hospital. Sadly, Parker passed away in IU Health Methodist Hospital. The other two students in the car were Luke Asher and Evan White. They are both in the hospital but are expected to make a full recovery.
The school as well as the other athletes who played with Parker are saddened by the news. The teen had a bright future and may have gone on to become a professional soccer player. He was slotted to attend Franklin College in the fall to play soccer.
