Five-month-old Drake Bigler was killed in a crash when officails say a driver with a blood alcohol content four times the legal limit swerved into oncoming traffic on Highway 29 near Starbuck, Minnesota, Saturday night and hit the Bigler family's vehicle. 

SMSU coach Brad Bigler broke several ribs and a shoulder.  His wife, Heather, had minor injuries.  Heather's grandmother was hospitalized.
