UWO bus catches fire

Volleyball players escape unharmed

A Greyhound bus carrying University of Western Ontario volleyball players caught fire Sunday night. When the driver noticed smoke coming out of the backend of the bus, he pulled over and the 35 players and coaching staff were quickly evacuated. The bus was returning to London down Highway 401 after games by both the men’s and women’s volleyball teams were played at the University of Toronto. The players escaped unharmed but the driver was taken to a hospital in Ingersoll. The students lost their jerseys, shoes, and in some cases course work, to the blaze. A second bus took the players and coaches back to the UWO campus.
