Montana State men's lacrosse team escapes bus fire after leaving Dickinson
Everyone escaped and the passengers were able to rescue some of the lacrosse gear, but more than 20 of the players lost their laptops, notes and schoolwork.
DICKINSON, N.D. — The Men's Lacrosse Team at Montana State University is thankful but shaken after a fire destroyed their bus while coming home from a road trip.
The team was in south-central Montana, headed back to Bozeman after a weekend of games in Dickinson, when an engine failure on the bus started a fire that spread quickly.
Everyone got out OK, and they were able to rescue some of the lacrosse gear, but more than 20 of the players lost their laptops and notes and schoolwork.
With just weeks from finals, the team started a gofundme in hopes of continuing their season and get to nationals. They started with a goal of $40,000, and as of Monday, April 11, had surpassed their goal by over $5,000.
