NORTHFIELD, Minn. (AP) — Three college students and members of one of the nation's top Ultimate Frisbee teams have died after a semitrailer truck slammed into their SUV when it spun on an icy Minnesota highway.
The Minnesota State Patrol says the accident happened around 3 p.m. Friday on Highway 3 near Northfield. Killed in the accident were 20-year-old James P. Adams of St. Paul, Minn.; 21-year-old Paxton M. Harvieux of Stillwater, Minn.; and 20-year-old Michael D. Goodgame of Westport, Conn. Two others in the vehicle sustained serious injuries. Another person in the SUV and the driver of the truck were not injured.
Eric Sieger, media relations director for Northfield-based Carleton College, tells The Minneapolis Star-Tribune (http://strib.mn/MCOOGJ ) the students played on the school's Ultimate Frisbee team, which finished third in the country last year.
