Elmira team in a bus crash

The Elmira Jackals (ECHL), the team I said could come back to Gwinnett anytime, crashed on their way home from a game. And it happened like 10 miles from where I grew up.

[the bus] struck the back of a tractor-trailer and went down an embankment, seriously injuring the bus driver and causing minor injuries to several players.


The bus driver, 56-year-old Kenneth Nance of Blossburg, was trapped in the wreckage before he was flown to Hamot Medical Center in Erie.


No players were hospitalized. The team sent a bus to pick them up.
