Preliminary autopsy results in
Preliminary autopsy results on the drivers of the two vehicles involved in Friday’s head-on collision near Ansley which killed three men, have been received by Custer County Attorney Tami Schendt. Schendt says the preliminary findings indicate that 70-year-old Albert Sherbeck, of Ansley, died as the result of multiple blunt force trauma due to the accident. However, the report also indicates severe cardiovascular disease which may have been a contributing factor to the accident. Sherbeck was driving a pickup traveling east on Highway 2, when it crossed the center lane and struck a 2000 Ford Econoline van transporting eight members of the Broken Bow High School boys basketball team, and two coaches. Both coaches were killed. Autopsy results of Coach Zane Harvey, driver of the van, conclude he died of injuries resulting from the accident. The accident investigation continues.
