A Fatal Accident Involving The UNL Tennis Team

A fatal accident involving a bus carrying the UNL girls tennis team, happened just south of Beatrice. The Nebraska State Patrol says 17-year-old Justin Ankersen of Wymore was killed when his car hit a charter bus that was carrying the UNL team. The team was heading to Manhattan, Kansas for a tournament against K-state April 15th. Authorities say Ankersen's car crossed the center line and hit the bus nearly head-on. No one on the bus was injured in the accident. The Nebraska Athletic Department says the players returned to Lincoln and the match was postponed.
