POWELL, Wyo. (AP) - A bus driver and four members of the Gillette College women’s basketball team were taken to the hospital after their bus collided with three cows and a power pole on U.S. Highway 14 east of Cody.

Coach Will Rider says the team was on its way back to Gillette on Saturday night after a game against Northwest College in Powell. He tells the Powell Tribune (bit.ly/2jsLCSI) that the dark, fog and snow flurries concealed the cows until just before the bus hit them.

The driver called 911 and Rider and his assistant began assessing the players’ injuries. Four players and the driver had back and muscle soreness and were treated at the hospital in Cody and released. The worst injury was a sprained wrist.

The men’s bus picked up the uninjured women’s players as the team traveled back to Gillette.
