(BCN) — A Denver Broncos team bus was disabled and a California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer fell off his bike in a minor crash on U.S. Highway 101 in Sunnyvale this afternoon, a CHP officer said.

 

The Broncos were headed back to their hotel from practice in preparation for Sunday’s Super Bowl at Levi’s Stadium.

 

As they drove south on Highway 101, they hit some slow traffic as they approached state Highway 237 and two of the buses collided shortly before 2 p.m., CHP Officer Daniel Hill said.

 

At the same time, a CHP motorcycle officer went down. It was not immediately clear if he was injured, but he was taken to a hospital as a precaution, Hill said.

 

No one on board the Broncos bus appeared to be injured. One of the buses sustained front-end damage, including a shattered windshield, and could not be driven away. The Broncos boarded a different bus and left the area, Hill said.

 

The team was all back at their hotel as of about 2:20 p.m., according to team spokesman Patrick Smyth.

 

Broncos linebacker DeMarcus Ware posted a photo of the bus crash on Twitter.

 

“To keep the day interesting, we have a small wreck,” Ware wrote. “Looks like everyone is ok though.”

 

The Broncos will take on the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 on Sunday.

 

//... If he did "fall off" I'm just glad that the bus wasn't tailgating him and had time to avoid him.
