ROSSFORD RECONFIGURATION

Rossford school leaders tonight voted to close one school to help cut costs. Indian Hills Elementary will close beginning the 2014-2015 school year. It's part of the district's reconfiguration plan. The plan is to move the youngest students into one building and put the older ones in another and send the sixth graders to the junior high. School leaders say this will save money and help teachers collaborate.

DEADLY ACCIDENT

Authorities say that set off a chain-reaction of crashes.
