University sets up online donation sites for crash victims
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The University of Sioux Falls Athletics is trying to help the families of two students involved in a fatal car crash with expenses.
Head Football Coach Jon Anderson says GoFundMe donation accounts have been set up online to help the families of wide receiver Courtney Beane, who was killed in the crash, and junior defensive end Jared Brito, who was seriously injured when he was thrown from the vehicle.
The Argus Leader says donations to Brito’s account goes toward his medical expenses. Any amount raised beyond that will be donated to charity in accordance with NCAA bylaws.
Authorities say the players’ car hit a bridge guard rail head on, traveled down a levee embankment and came to rest under the bridge last Sunday.
