Casper, WY – All members of a Casper-based marching band are said to be safe following a bus crash in western Iowa this morning. The Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps were on their way to a competition in Indiana when their tour bus crashed and rolled over.
Initial wire reports said that more than three dozen people were injured and taken to hospitals in Omaha as the result of the accident. A posting on The Troopers Facebook page says that all of the marching band members and the bus driver have been released.
Investigators believe that a blown tire caused the crash.
