Missouri basketball team bus in accident

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) -- A charter bus carrying the Missouri basketball team was involved in an accident Saturday, but no team members were hurt.

The Kansas Highway patrol says the team was returning to an Overland Park hotel after practicing in Lawrence when the accident occurred on Kansas 10. The two teams will play this afternoon in Lawrence.

The patrol says the driver of a vehicle lost control and hit another vehicle. The second car then hit Missouri's bus, which carred 31 people. The driver of the second car was hospitalized.

Dave Reiter, a spokesman for Missouri's men's team, says the team was delayed about an hour. He said the people on the bus gave the driver a standing ovation for his actions during the wreck.
