Silver Creek senior Alex Long, a starter on the Silver Creek boys basketball team, and his sister Sarah were seriously injured in a head-on car collision after school on Friday.
Long, the team’s third-leading scorer, suffered internal injuries, according to a text sent by his father Chuck, and was transported to a Louisville hospital. Sarah suffered a fractured leg, collar bone, spine and internal injuries that required surgery.
Silver Creek played Mid-Southern Conference rival Brownstown on Friday night and lost 65-62. Both teams observed a moment of silence in support of the Long family prior to the game.
