Three U of MN Students Killed in Car Crash

Three University of Minnesota students were killed Thursday in Wisconsin after an alleged drunk driver crashed into their car along a Wisconsin highway.

The three students were sitting in their stalled car on Interstate 39/90 near Madison, according to the Star Tribune, when an alleged drunk driver slammed into the car.

The names of the students will be released once family members have been notified, according to the Pioneer Press. Ryan Maus, a university spokesman, told the Pioneer Press that two of the students were members of the Spirit Squad.

Wisconsin State Patrol arrested a Madison man Thursday on suspicion of driving under the influence, according to the Star Tribune. His injuries were not life-threatening.
