Michigan police say a minivan carrying a high school golf team broadsided another van, killing the coach, a player and a passenger in the other vehicle.

State Police Sgt. Don Bailey says the coach and six players from the Grayling High School boys' golf team were headed to a match Monday morning when their silver minivan broadsided a white minivan in Excelsior Township, about 25 miles east of Traverse City.

Bailey says a 17-year-old player was killed and four others are in critical condition.

A 27-year-old woman in the white minivan also was killed. The female driver was injured, while a 3-year-old girl appeared unhurt.

No names have been released.

Bailey says the silver van may have run a stop sign and the white minivan may have been speeding.
