Bus carrying FSU track team involved in accident
47 people on board safely removed from bus
Benton County Emergency Manager Robert McGowen says a bus carrying members of the Florida State University track and field team slid off a slick Arkansas Highway 112 but added that there were no injuries and all on board were safe.
McGowen told The Associated Press that the rear of the bus skidded off the roadway in a curve in Cave Springs and that the 47 people on board were removed safely and taken to a nearby elementary school.
FSU associate sports information director said the bus was carrying the team, coaches and support staff to Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport for a flight back to Tallahassee after the FSU competed in this weekend's Razorback Invitational track and field meet at the University of Arkansas.
