[Floridatoday (http://floridatoday.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20061023/BREAKINGNEWS/61023001/1086)] The driver of a pickup truck died and several others were injured when the driver hit a tour bus carrying Miami Dolphins fans Sunday evening, setting off a fire that engulfed both vehicles, officials said.

Four people from the tour bus were transported to area hospitals, according to Broward Sheriff's Office Fire-Rescue spokesman Mike Jachles. None of their injuries appeared to be life-threatening, Jachles said.

The fire apparently broke out after the crash and spread to the bus after all 29 passengers had gotten off the vehicle, Jachles said. The accident happened at about 6:20 p.m. after the pickup truck strayed over a median on Alligator Alley near mile marker 43 and hit the tour bus head on, according to a statement released by the Broward Sheriff's Office and a spokeswoman for the Florida Highway Patrol. The name of the truck driver has not been released.

Is there any word about who may have been involved. Let's pray that none off 'ours' were among those injured or killed in the crash.

My heart and prayers go out to the victims and families involved. :pray:
