The only casualty from this high school football team’s bus fire
was the bus itself, which is amazing because, goodness gracious,
look at the flames coming off that thing.
This happened Friday in Portland, Ore., where the Central
Catholic JV football team was on its way to a game, and it happened
during rush-hour traffic. Everybody on the bus made it safely off
before it was consumed by flame, standing roadside in their
football pants. It took the firefighters forever to get to the
scene because of the rush-hour traffic jam caused by … the
flaming bus. The same was true for Central Catholic’s replacement
bus, which didn’t arrive in time to get its team to the game, which
soon was canceled.
