A Dallas Cowboys tour bus collided with a minivan around 1.40 p.m. Sunday, a few miles south of Dolan Springs, Killing four people.
All the casualties are from the people riding in the minivan. Passengers in the tour bus, that is Mickey Spagnola, a sports writer with DallasCowboys.com, a videographer, a mascot and the driver, are said to be unharmed. Players or cheerleaders were absent from the list of people on the bus.
The tour bus was headed for GameWorks restaurant in Las Vegas, when the crash happened. This was going to be a pit stop for the tour bus, to meet and greet its Las Vegas fans, before it headed to California on Monday for their appearance in West Hollywood.
According to News 3, Greg Freeman, president of the Las Vegas Cowboys fan group:
“We had about 80 people here waiting for them. We had been working for about four years to get them to stop in Las Vegas, because they no longer will be training in Oxnard, so this was the last chance. We heard about the crash on Google and then when they were late showing up and somebody called us.”
A manager at GameWorks in Las Vegas, Carlos Montoya, said that the scheduled time for the arrival of the tour bus was 3 p.m. It was all a part of “Road Trippin’ 2016.” An excited Spagnola had also put up a post on his Twitter account the moment the Cowboy Tour bus took off for their Las Vegas destination on Saturday.
The identities of the casualties and the survivors of the minivan are still unknown. Further investigation is currently being conducted to determine the cause behind the fatal accident, reports Azcentral.
No details have been mentioned regarding the accident in the official website of Dallas Cowboys either.
