Foul! Snowmobile charges into side of Willmar's bus

Email

It could have had a tragic outcome, but only a snowmobile was destroyed and a bus load of basketball players were delayed getting home Friday night.

The school bus carrying the Cardinals girls home after beating St. Cloud Tech was headed southwest through Cold Spring on State Highway 23 at 10 p.m.

A startling sound interrupted the trip just after the bus passed through the traffic signal and past the Super America store at the main intersection.
