1 killed after van with water polo team collides with truck

NAPOLEON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a woman has been killed and five people critically injured after a van carrying members of an Ohio girls’ high school water polo team was struck by a semitrailer in northwest Ohio.

The Henry County Sheriff’s Office says the van failed to yield at an intersection Friday and was struck in the side.

The sheriff’s office says 19-year-old van passenger Courtney Fisher died at the scene. The injured include the van’s driver, 45-year-old Vicki Fisher; 17-year-old Betsey Fisher; 14-year-old Melanie Fisher; 15-year-old Samantha Fink; and 14-year-old Sydney Zullich.

Some of the passengers were members of a water polo team from Worthington Kilbourne High School in suburban Columbus headed to a tournament in Napoleon.

The sheriff’s office says the semi driver wasn’t hurt.
