Husky Marching Band will not perform at Apple Cup after bus crash

The University of Washington marching band will not attend Friday's Apple Cup against Washington State after a bus carrying members of the band rolled over on an icy highway Thursday night.

The charter buses were headed to the Apple Cup, a football game against Washington State University that is scheduled for Friday in Pullman. None of the injuries band members sustained in the crash are reportedly life-threatening. The bus carried 56 people, he added.

Trooper John Bryant said that about 40-45 band members were transported to local hospitals as a precaution.

"The injuries reported were cuts, complaints of general pain and back pain, but the injuries are not believed to be critical", UW spokesperson Victor Balta said in a statement. He shared photos from the scene of the overturned bus, with the bumper partially ripped off and misshapen front window frames.

While regrouping at the school, and after their plight was reported by a local radio station, students were treated to Thanksgiving food from community members, plus hot food cooked by school cafeteria workers, and sandwiches donated by a local business.

"The health and well-being of our students is our top priority and it became evident that our band members need to recover and return home", Washington athletic director Jennifer Cohen said in a statement.

The people in George rallying to help the band even included fans of their rivals from Washington State University, according to a tweet from UW Cheer.

Crews are working on getting an area school bus to the site of the crash to transport band instruments and equipment.

The WSU Marching Band posted to Twitter that its thoughts and prayers were "with the UW band family".
