The Georgetown team bus was involved in an accident on I-95 in Maryland on Monday en route to Philly for their Tuesday night game against Villanova.

There were no major injuries involving members of the team, although point guard Tre Campbell “banged up” his right knee, a source told NBC Sports. The bus company was able to provide the team with another bus to get them to Philly.

According to a release from the Maryland state police, a 49-year old woman and her 17-year old son were in the SUV that overturned. Both were taken to Harbor Hospital, although they were able to get out of the car on their own. A preliminary investigation by the MSP indicates that the bus, traveling in the right lane behind the SUV, struck it from behind and forced it off the road, where it overturned.

The car flipped over “three or four times,” the team spokesman said, adding that when the 17-year old came out of the car, he didn’t have any shoes on. “One of our guys grabbed sneakers for him to wear.”
