MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) - One of three Central Michigan University soccer players who were hurt in a weekend rollover crash has died, the school said Monday.

Josie Seebeck, a 19-year-old sophomore from Montgomery, Ala., died Sunday night, the university's athletic department said in a statement.

Seebeck, a midfielder on the school's women's team, and two other students who play for the Mount Pleasant school, were hurt when their vehicle crashed and rolled over Friday on Interstate 69 near Lansing.

``This is a tragic loss for our family and for the Central Michigan family,'' Seebeck's family said in a statement released through the school. ``She was a beautiful girl who we loved very much and still love very much.

``This has left a big hole in our family and we are touched by all the people who have reached out to us over the past few days. She was a wonderful, selfless person and we will miss her very much. We want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers.''

One of the injured students remained hospitalized Monday, while the other was discharged from a hospital Saturday.

The school didn't release the names of the injured students or specify whether they play for the men's or women's teams. Authorities were investigating the crash.

Athletics director Dave Heeke said that it's ``a tough, tragic time for our soccer student-athletes and the entire CMU Chippewa family.''

Grief counselors were on hand to support the team, fellow students, faculty and staff.
