NBA: Hawks’ team bus in accident, no injuries reported

Associated Press

MILWAUKEE — A car collided with the Atlanta Hawks' bus as the team was leaving a shootaround session in downtown Milwaukee early Monday afternoon. A team spokesman says no one was injured.

Hawks spokesman Arthur Triche says the accident happened around 12:30 p.m. Monday as the team was leaving the Bradley Center. Triche says the side of the bus received "quite a jolt" in the accident, and air bags deployed on the car that hit the bus, but everyone was OK.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported the incident on its Web site Monday afternoon, displaying a photograph of a white car with significant front-end damage and a dent in the side of the bus.

The Hawks play the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 4 of a first-round playoff series Monday night. Atlanta holds a 2-1 edge in the series.
