Another witness, Michelle, told said she was one car behind the bus when the accident happened.The game has been rescheduled to Monday night at 7:00 p.m.
"The car in front (of me) got sideswiped... and the next thing I saw it looked like the bus jumped literally 30 feet in the air like you see on TV shows and the bus went sideways, sliding two lanes across the freeway and went into the embankment."
Many of the players and coaches had to escape via the emergency hatch on the top of the bus.
Pratt says none of the 38 people on board was seriously injured -- mostly just a few bumps and bruises. Eight players were taken to a hospital to be checked out as a precaution.
The team was on its way the Tacoma Dome to play in a state semifinal game, and the fact that the players were wearing most of their football pads certainly helped avoid serious injuries, Pratt said.
