Early Sunday afternoon, a Dodge van crashed into the Dallas Cowboys team bus as the van tried to make a left turn across traffic at the intersection of Pierce Ferry Road and State Route 93 just north of Kingman, Arizona. All four of the van's passengers were killed. Each of the four people on the Cowboys bus — all staff, including Cowboys in-house journalist Mickey Spagnola and the guy who plays the Cowboys mascot, Rowdy — escaped major injury. The bus was headed from Phoenix to Las Vegas as part of a preseason tour. The bus is currently being looked at by the Arizona Department of Public Safety's commercial vehicle inspectors.
Thanks to Sharon Wilkens-Strickland's generous contribution to the Observer via Facebook, we've got some video of the crash's aftermath. As you can see from the videos, the Cowboys bus has a broken windshield, but doesn't look that much worse for the wear.
