Several players injured in bus accident
SHAWNEE, Okla. -- Several members of an Oklahoma men's college basketball team suffered minor injuries when their bus collided with a semi-truck east of Oklahoma City on Saturday afternoon.
According to a statement from St. Gregory's University officials, the accident occurred as the bus was headed to Rogers State University in Claremore for a game.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Chris West says the bus was traveling on U.S. Highway 177 when it hit the back of the truck.
About a dozen players were on the bus, and school officials said several players were transported to Unity Health Center in Shawnee for treatment. West says the injuries didn't appear to be serious.
The game was canceled.
St. Gregory's is an NAIA school in Shawnee, about 40 miles east of Oklahoma City.
