This sounds bad, but no injuries have been reported: a Tacoma-bound bus carrying the Bellevue High School football team has crashed on southbound I-5 near Des Moines.

The Washington State Patrol is on the scene. The bus overturned at 11:08 a.m. KIRO-TV reported no injuries, as did KOMO, with slightly more detail. The bus is blocking the two right lanes of southbound I-5 at South 216th Street. The three left lanes remain open.

The team was headed for the semifinal of the 3A state football championship at the Tacoma Dome. The game has been postponed.
