4 dead after van collides with Dallas Cowboys bus in Arizona

ARIZONA -- Four people were killed Sunday when bus carrying Dallas Cowboys staffers but no players collided with a van on a northwestern Arizona highway.

The fatalities were passengers in the van, Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Quentin Mehr said. But the bus occupants emerged uninjured.

"All on the bus came through OK with some bumps and bruises," Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple said in an email.

Dalrymple said the bus was carrying members of the franchise's staff but would not say how many. There were no players on board.

The bus was traveling from Irving, Texas to GameWorks in Town Square Las Vegas for a fan event. The bus would then proceed to Oxnard, California for the start of NFL training camp in two weeks, CBS affiliate KLAS reported.

The two vehicles collided in the afternoon on U.S. 93, about 30 miles north of the city of Kingman, according to DPS.

The crash shut down at least one lane of the highway that serves as the main route between Phoenix and Las Vegas.
