Maine Women’s Basketball Game With Boston University Postponed Wednesday After Bus Accident
After a bus accident last night involving Maine’s women’s basketball team, the team’s scheduled America East conference game tonight against Boston University has been postponed.
The accident was a result of the team’s bus driver, who was not identified, suffering from some sort of medical condition and passing out, according to Athletic Director Steve Abbott, resulting in the bus crossing the median into oncoming traffic before stopping on the shoulder, miraculously not striking any cars in the process. The driver was transported by helicopter to a Boston area hospital.
Fortunately, the team only suffered minor injuries, as the incident obviously could have been much worse than it was.
As of now, no information has been made available as to whether or not the game will be made up prior to March’s America East championships.
