A minor league baseball team had a close call Tuesday morning when their van was involved in a collision at a Scottsdale intersection.
The crash, at Chaparral and Scottsdale Roads, involved 13 people: 12 people in the van and one person in the other vehicle. Initial reports describe how a Kia turned out of a hotel drive way, crossed the northbound lanes on Scottsdale Road and hit the van carrying players from the San Francisco Giants’ minor league team. There were between three and six people from the van taken to the hospital with injuries. The driver of the Kia, possibly at fault, suffered no injuries. While none of the reported injuries were life threatening, the crash could have been a lot worse. The at-fault driver was negligent and not driving with the proper precautions to avoid a crash.
