Another teammate, Drew Davis Hill, 20, of Canadian, Texas, remained in the Haskell Memorial Hospital with serious injuries. His condition Sunday was unknown.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety: The crash occurred at the intersection of U.S. 277 and U.S. 277 Business, where a 1997 Dodge Ram 3500 pickup, driven by McCuistoin, disregarded a stop sign and encountered a motor home driven by Michael Lea Moynihan, 73, of San Angelo. Moynihan was transported to Haskell Memorial Hospital with serious injuries. His condition Sunday was unknown.
