Update to UW bus crash: this is a photo sent to us by a marching band member who was there but not on that bus (there were 3 carrying #UW marching band members). No serious injuries. Happened at 5:26p on EB I-90 near George, WA. Working on more for @KIRO7Seattle at 11p #huskies https://t.co/nR4Bms7kT6
The school released a statement on the incident, noting there were no serious injuries to any of the 56 people on the bus, and the students were taken to a local elementary school after the accident:
The band was heading to Pullman for Friday's crucial Apple Cup between No. 16 Washington and No. 8 Washington State. At stake for both teams is a berth in the Pac-12 title game and potential conference title.
For Washington State, however, a berth in the College Football Playoff is still a possibility if it wins out, adding another dimension to an already-intense rivalry game.
