Maybe you have read that the bus of the Carolina Mudcats got off he road tipped and landed on it’s side, causing injuries to seven people that needed to be treated in hospital.
After a few days the team has decided to let the others to be checked and to let them receive additional medical care if needed, before the team gets back to play. This means that the three game road series in Myrtle Beach, to which they were traveling, will be cancelled.
The driver of the bus was blamed for driving too fast regarding the conditions. The driver failed to make a curve and the bus hit a ditch.
Just to be clear, these Carolina Mudcats are playing in the single A Advanced Carolina League and have no direct ties with the Carolina Mudcats that played in the AA Southern League. Pensacola businessman Quint Studer bought the AA Mudcats in 2011 and moved them to Pensacola where they play under the name of Pensacola Blue Wahoos. Studer had to arrange that the former Kinston Indians moved to Zebulon NC, to become the Mudcats in the Carolina League.
