ECHL team bus in accident

From ESPN:

HARBORCREEK, Pa. -- A bus carrying members of a New York minor league hockey team struck the back of a tractor-trailer and went down an embankment, seriously injuring the bus driver and causing minor injuries to several players.

The Elmira Jackals of the ECHL were returning home after a 7-1 loss Wednesday in Cincinnati when the accident happened about 4:15 a.m. Thursday on Interstate 90 about 35 miles from the Ohio border, police said.

Lets hope that the bus driver is okay. The Jackals are an affiliate team of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Tip of the hat to Nicole for the heads up, who actually commented on my blog and strayed away from Google Reader. Baby steps.
