Six Students Remain In Hospitals After School Van And Semi Crash”

The Swift County Sheriff says there are no fatalities "as of right now" in a crash involving a school van and a semi in western Minnesota. He said the van may have had a yield sign, and the semi did not have a stop sign.

Sheriff Holtz said the children involved were between 8 and 16 years old, and some of them were siblings. Schroeder is from Holloway and all of the other students are from Danvers. Minnesota State Patrol, Benson and Appleton police departments also responded.

UPDATE - The Hancock Public School van was driven by Judith Van Eps, 68, of Hancock. Passengers in the school van were Gaige Sanderson, 16, Harleigh Schlief, 16, and Savannah Schlief, 14. These three are from Danvers and are listed in critical condition.

The wreck left the seven children in the van and its driver injured, while the semi driver, 43-year-old Jeremy Beyer of Danvers was treated and released at the scene.

Two 10-year-olds and a 12-year-old are hospitalized in stable condition.

Blade Schlief, 10, of Danvers, who is in stable condition.

Holtz says the man driving the semitrailer was evaluated at the scene and released.

An earlier report from Swift County Sheriff John Holtz said that all the injured were initially taken to either Appleton Area Health Services or Swift County-Benson Hospital and two or three were later airlifted by Life Link to metro hospitals. The van was southbound on a gravel road when it entered the intersection, and the semi, pulling an empty grain trailer eastbound on a paved road, struck the van on the passenger side.
