NORTHFIELD, Minn. (AP) — Three college students and members of one of the nation's top Ultimate Frisbee teams have died after a semitrailer truck slammed into their SUV when it spun on an icy Minnesota highway.

The Minnesota State Patrol says the accident happened around 3 p.m. Friday on Highway 3 near Northfield. Killed in the accident were 20-year-old James P. Adams of St. Paul, Minn.; 21-year-old Paxton M. Harvieux of Stillwater, Minn.; and 20-year-old Michael D. Goodgame of Westport, Conn. Two others in the vehicle sustained serious injuries. The driver of the truck was not injured.

Eric Sieger, media relations director for Northfield-based Carleton College, says the students played on the school's Ultimate Frisbee team, which finished third in the country last year.
