The bus carrying Wichita State’s women’s basketball team was involved in an accident following the team’s departure from Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport Saturday evening.

The team was en route from Eisenhower airport to Charles Koch Arena. The team had just returned from Connecticut, where they lost to the No. 1 UConn Huskies earlier Saturday afternoon.

The bus struggled with the icy road conditions in Wichita, as reported in the Wichita Eagle. No injuries were reported at the time of the accident.
