MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A crash last November involving buses carrying the Washington Redskins on their way to play the Minnesota Vikings will cost the city of Minneapolis more than $237,000.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1GfcGGa ) reports the proposed settlement will be discussed and likely approved next week by the city’s budget committee. The payment would be split about evenly between Minneapolis-based Lorenz Bus Service and Gotham Insurance Company.

Two buses transporting the Redskins collided on an interstate exit ramp near TCF Bank Stadium. A squad car moving toward the front of the motorcade lost control, causing an abrupt stop and one bus to rear end another.

Injuries were minor, but running back Silas Redd was held out of the game because of back spasms. The Minneapolis Police Department subsequently suspended the practice of escorting pro sports teams.
