At least three people killed on Friday when a van carrying high school basketball players collided with a pickup truck in Nebraska.
The accident occurred just before 4:00 p.m. one mile west of Ansley on Highway 2.
Authorities said the pickup, driven by 70-year-old Albert Sherbeck, was traveling eastbound on the highway when it crossed the center line and hit the westbound 2009 Ford Econoline van carrying the boys’ basketball team from Broken Bow High School.
Thirty-eight year-old Zane Harvey, who was driving the van, and front-seat passenger, Anthony Blum, 24, were killed in the head on collision.
Reports say coach Harvey, who was also a math teacher, and Blum, who coached at Lincoln High School before moving to Broken Bow, were driving students home from a basketball clinic in Kearney.
Eight boys were taken to hospitals, including two who were treated and released.
The conditions of the other six were not immediately known.
A vigil is scheduled for Saturday morning at the school.
