Bus carrying FSU track team slides off Arkansas road

CAVE SPRINGS, Ark. — A bus carrying members of Florida State University’s track and field team slid off a state highway in northwest Arkansas on Sunday, but no one was injured.

Benton County Emergency Manager Robert McGowen said the rear of the bus slid off Arkansas 112 while driving on a curve in Cave Springs.

The 47 people on board were removed safely and taken to a nearby elementary school.

FSU associate sports information director Bob Thomas said the athletes, coaches and support staff had competed in the University of Arkansas’ Razorback Invitational track and field meet this weekend.

The bus was headed to Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport, where the team was to fly back to Tallahassee.
