Bus accident update

Posted by wlpo on November 18, 2012

We’re awaiting an accident report from the Sheriff’s office explaining why a bus carrying the LP Freshman girls basketball team and coaches left I-80 east of Ottawa Saturday morning. The News Tribune reported the accident occurred just east of the Route 71 exit around 9:45am. The Tribune also reported all on board were checked at the scene with three team members and the bus driver taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital for treatment. The three players were later released, according to LP Superintendent Steve Wrobleski. The condition of the bus driver isn’t known and names have not been released. In a recorded phone announcement, Wrobleski commended the actions of the coaches involved. The game was cancelled.
