Two drivers were injured when a minivan crashed into a bus driving a Lincoln high school soccer team to North Platte on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Seward County Sheriff's Office.

A minivan carrying more than half a million dollars of suspected drug money crashed into a bus driving a Lincoln high school soccer team to North Platte on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Seward County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff Mike Vance said both of the drivers were taken to a hospital in Lincoln for their injuries. 

But there were no serious injuries reported among the Pius X High School girls team, who had been heading to a game in North Platte when the crash happened near the Crete exit of Interstate 80 at about 2 p.m. 

During the course of the initial investigation, deputies were able to confirm the minivan, which struck the bus, had about $570,000 in suspected drug money inside. 

The driver was a 62-year-old former law enforcement officer, Vance said.

The investigation is ongoing.
