The Washington Redskins had a rather scary trip to Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings, as a bus carrying players and coaches was involved in an accident.

A Redskins spokesman says there were no injuries to players or coaches when two of the team's buses collided on a highway exit ramp while driving to TCF Stadium.

"Everyone is fine. No one was injured," Tony Wyllie said

Wyllie said that the accident will not affect the Redskins' game Sunday.

Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon, one of the players aboard when the incident occurred, documented the damage on Twitter.

Minnesota State Patrol Lt. Eric Roeske said one of the Minneapolis police squads escorting two buses crashed into a guard rail and ended up in front of the buses. He said the first bus braked but the second bus rear ended the first bus on the ramp. He said the accident call came in around 8:15 a.m.

Roeske said the officer in the squad car was taken to the hospital. He added there were minor injuries like scrapes and bruises on at least one bus passenger, but he didn't know how many sustained injuries.

The team arrived safely for their 1 p.m. game.

Running backSilas Reddis the only Redskins player that is inactive because of the bus accident as he is experiencing back spasms after the incident. Redd told ESPN980 Radio that he is OK,but that the accident was a scary ordeal.
