Blue Valley West van carrying students crashes

Posted: Updated:

A van carrying Blue Valley West High School wrestlers crashed Friday while en route to a tournament in Nebraska.

Seven wrestlers and an assistant were on board the van that crashed. One wrestler was treated and released at an Omaha hospital.

All eight on board the van were wearing their seatbelts.

Two vans carrying Blue Valley West students and staff were traveling north on Interstate 29 about 16 miles south of Omaha Friday morning. One van hit a slick spot, traveled off the highway and rolled over.

The shaken wrestlers and staff returned to Overland Park, opting not to complete in the wrestling tournament.
