TRENTON, Utah (AP) - Four Utah State football players and a former softball player were hurt when a tractor-trailer collided with their SUV on Friday.

The Salt Lake Tribune (https://shar.es/1qvQdQ ) reported that witnesses said their Chevy Tahoe was eastbound on state Route 142 when it pulled in to the intersection with state Route 23 in Trenton and was T-boned by the southbound semi.

The Utah Highway Patrol said the semi carrying 52,000 pounds of milk struck the SUV on the driver’s side and pushed it 75 yards.

Utah State identified the football players as defensive linemen Travis Seefeldt, Adewale Adeoye, Edmund Faimalo and John Taylor, and the former softball player as outfielder Sarah Vasquez.

They were hospitalized. Seefeldt and Vasquez were in critical condition. The truck driver’s condition was unknown.

“We will do everything we can to help all the student-athletes involved in today’s car accident and will give them all the love and support they need,” Aggies football coach Matt Wells said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved.”

Seefeldt, a senior from Peoria, Arizoba, had 35 tackles, 25 tackles for loss and two sacks last season.

Adeoye is freshman from St. Louis, Faimalo a junior from Riverside, California, and Taylor a senior from Colton, California. Vasquez, also from Colton, California, completed her college career this year.
