Deadly crash in Arizona between Dallas Cowboys bus and van

A bus owned by the Dallas Cowboys carrying staffers collided with a van Sunday. Four occupants in the van were killed alongside a northwestern Arizona highway.



According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Quentin Mehr, the occupants on the bus were uninjured, and each of the fatalities were in the van. There were no Cowboys players on the bus.

The vehicles collided on Highway 93 and shut down a main lane of traffic between Phoenix and Las Vegas, Nevada.

The bus was en route to a fan event in Las Vegas; subsequently the president of the Las Vegas Cowboys Fan Club relayed the news of the collision and the event was canceled.

Mickey Spagnola ( columnist), team mascot and the team’s videographer were on board the bus at the time, as well as the franchise’s staff. Cowboys spokesman, Rich Dalrymple said via email, those on the bus sustained some bumps and bruises but did not mention how many staff members were on board at the time.
