A drive-by parade was held Wednesday for local gymnast Jackie Biehler, who has spent months receiving out-of-town care after being seriously injured in an accident at practice back in July.

The drive-by parade was to give Jackie a warm welcome home as she returned from the hospital.

Several of Jackie’s family and friends lined up in cars and golf carts to put a smile on her face.

The Tri-State teen is a level 8 gymnast at The Zone Athletics Center in Evansville. She suffered a serious neck injury several months ago after taking a fall at practice.

She was flown to Louisville for treatment, where she underwent several surgeries.

Now, after months of recovery, Jackie is back home.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
