Player Injured When College Basketball Team’s Bus Crashes

GEORGETOWN, Mass. (February 27, 2013)--A bus carrying the University of Maine women's basketball team ran off a highway north of Boston, leaving one player with a broken hand, the head coach with minor facial cuts and the driver seriously injured.

A university spokeswoman said the bus crossed a median on Interstate 95 at around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, went across the northbound lanes and slid down an embankment in Georgetown.

Freshman guard Milica Mitrovic broke her hand and head coach Richard Barron was treated for facial cuts.

All of the players and staff were taken to three hospitals for observation and released early Wednesday.

Police say the driver may have had a medical episode.

He was taken by helicopter to a Boston hospital.

The team was en route to play Boston University on Wednesday night.

The game was canceled.
