A Peru State College student has died from injuries sustained in a weekend car crash.
A spokesman for the college reports Justin Haystrand suffered serious head injuries in a crash very early Sunday morning on U.S. Highway 75 south of Nebraska City.
Haystrand, from New Port Richey, Florida, played for the Peru State football team.
A spokesman for the college sent a letter to the campus community in which he stated Haystrand was flown to Bryan West Campus in Lincoln Sunday and was declared legally dead Monday.
Haystrand was a junior who majored in kinesiology.
Peru State plans to hold a candlelight vigil for the campus Tuesday evening and a public memorial service Wednesday afternoon.
