WESTPHALIA (AP) — Two drivers who were injured when a Missouri high school girls soccer team collided with another vehicle remain hospitalized but all team members have been released from the hospital.

The Missouri Highway Patrol said a bus carrying the Belle High School girls soccer team was struck nearly head-on Friday night by a car trying to pass another vehicle on U.S. 63 in Westphalia. The team was returning from a district championship game when the crash occurred.

Five girls and a coach were taken to University Hospital in Columbia. KRCG-TV reported they were all released by Saturday.

The bus driver, 54-year-old Randy Hicks, of Belle; and the driver of the second vehicle, 18-year-old Caleb Hock, of Jefferson City, were flown to the hospital. They were listed in fair condition Monday.
