Rays’ bus hit making turn on way to game

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — A bus taking Tampa Bay players and staff from their hotel to Rangers Ballpark was in a minor accident that didn’t result in any injuries.

Rays manager Joe Maddon said the bus was making a left turn soon after leaving the team’s Fort Worth hotel Monday when it was hit by another vehicle. Maddon describes the impact as “innocuous” and “really little, to the point where you didn’t even know.”

There was about a 15-minute delay while the bus driver got out and addressed the situation.

Maddon said the bus was turning when the driver suddenly said something. The manager, who had to ask the driver if the bus had been hit, says it was like two base runners colliding on a basepath.
