ANSLEY, Neb. (AP) — A hospital spokeswoman says one high school student remains in critical condition following a crash of a basketball team van that killed two coaches and the driver of a pickup truck that collided with it.

Marsha Wilkerson says two other students are in serious condition, one is in fair condition and one was treated and released from Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney. Another student was in fair condition at another hospital, and two others were treated and released last night.

The accident happened Friday along Highway 2 in rural central Nebraska near Ansley, a small town about 160 miles west of Lincoln.

The State Patrol reported 38-year-old Zane Harvey and 24-year-old Anthony Blum, coaches at Broken Bow High School, were killed. The truck driver, 70-year-old Albert Sherbeck, also was killed.
