Bus full of football players crashes on way to state playoffs

RAPID CITY, S.D.  – A bus full of Steven’s High School football players got into an accident on Interstate 90 near Wall on Thursday.

While on their way to a playoff game in Sioux Falls, S.D., the bus lost traction as the drive tried  to avoid a collision with a semi-truck that was blocking the interstate.

Due to road conditions at the time, a collision was unavoidable. But damage to the semi and the bus was limited to the exterior of both vehicles.

None of the players or the driver were injured in the crash and they were able to return to school later in the day.

For the safety of the players, their game has been postponed to Friday evening.
