Doylestown college wrestlers injured in Las Vegas sidewalk crash

    A suburban Philadelphia college said five wrestlers and their coach are among the dozens of people struck by a car and injured in Las Vegas.

    Delaware Valley University in Doylestown said the group plans to return campus Tuesday after receiving medical treatment.

    The team was walking to a movie Sunday night when the car drove onto a sidewalk and struck pedestrians, school officials said.

    The group includes wrestling coach and athletic director Steve Cantrell, who said the team pulled out of the Desert Duals tournament given the ordeal.

    A group of college wrestlers from Oregon was also injured in the crash on the Las Vegas strip.

    A 24-year-old woman driving with her toddler in the car is facing homicide charges after one woman died of her injuries.
