Team bus crashes at Denver airport sending 20 players and coaches to the hospital
DENVER — Several coaches and players were rushed to the hospital in critical condition after their school bus crashed into a concrete wall at the Denver International Airport, authorities said Sunday afternoon.
The female driver reportedly died in the crash.
Hospitals officials told FOX31 two patients were admitted in critical condition, two more were in serious condition and six others are in fair condition. The conditions of five additional people have not been disclosed.
The players from Broomfield’s Legacy High School were returning from a game against Chino Hills High School in California.

An official with DIA tweets that all passenger pickups were taking place on Terminal West because of the crash on the east terminal.
