Softball team safe after bus accident

All of the members of the Simpson College softball team and coaches are safe with no serious injuries after their bus was involved in an accident on I-80 this morning.

The team was headed East on Interstate 80 near Newton when a semi-truck jack-knifed immediately in front of the privately chartered bus.

Another bus picked the team up to continue on its trip to the season-opening tournament in Marquette, Mich.
