CLEMSON, S.C. -- North Carolina’s players and coaches escaped injury Wednesday when the team bus was involved in a car wreck on the way to the team’s shoot-around practice in preparation for a 9 p.m. game at Clemson, a team spokesman said.
Matt Bowers, associate athletics communications director for North Carolina, said a car hit the bus in the parking lot outside Littlejohn Coliseum. Bowers said the female driver of the car wasn’t injured. There were some minor scrapes on the bus, but the woman’s car sustained significant damage.
The crash slightly delayed the Tar Heels’ arrival at Littlejohn for the shoot-around.
On his Twitter page, North Carolina freshman forward John Henson had a sense of humor about the crash.
“Wow on the way too shootaround and car spears us coincidence .......I think not lol,” Henson tweeted.
