LIBERAL, Kan. (AP) — Garden City Community College’s women’s basketball team escaped injury when the team bus was involved in an accident on the way to a game.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the bus was 11 miles north of Liberal on U.S. 83 Wednesday afternoon when cargo from a semi-trailer truck going the opposite way hit the driver’s side of the bus.

The bus was not drivable, prompting the school to cancel the women’s game with Seward County Community College. The women’s team returned to Garden City on another bus.

The game has been rescheduled for 6 p.m. Feb. 2 in Liberal.
