HILLSBORO, Kan. (AP) — Authorities in central Kansas say two Tabor College football players from California died in a crash near Hillsboro.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said the single-vehicle crash happened just before 4 a.m. Sunday on a rural road south of Hillsboro.

First responders found Johnethon Aviles, of Paso Robles, and Christopher Castillo of Tustin, Calif., dead at the scene. A third Tabor football player, Jonathan Medina, was taken to a Wichita hospital with serious injuries.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said Medina was driving a vehicle that went off an embankment and rolled.
