Hundreds gather to remember 2 Neb. coaches killed in crash; 4 students remain hospitalized By The Associated Press

ANSLEY, Neb. (AP) ' Hundreds of people have gathered in Nebraska to remember two high school basketball coaches killed when a team van collided with a pickup.

Broken Bow Public Schools organized Saturday morning's vigil in Ansley for 38-year-old Zane Harvey and 24-year-old Anthony Blum. The Omaha World-Herald reported that Pastor Larry DeMoss, of Broken Bow Berean Church, told the crowd "our collective heart was broken" by the crash.

The crash happened Friday along Highway 2 near Ansley, as the coaches and eight students were returning from camp. The state patrol says Harvey and Blum were killed, along with the driver of the pickup.

All eight students were taken to hospitals after the crash. The school district says four students remain hospitalized Saturday.
