The CHP tells ABC7 News that the two buses collided and a CHP motorcycle officer sustained minor injuries in the crash.

Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware tweeted a photo of players standing alongside their bus. He posted: "To keep the day interested, we have a small wreck. Looks like everyone is ok though."

Just before 2 p.m., two buses carrying Denver Broncos players were heading southbound on Highway 101 approaching 237.

For unknown reasons, two of the buses collided. The buses were being escorted by CHP motorcycle officers.

One CHP motorcycle officer went down. He suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital to be checked out.

The players were taken away on different buses and returned to their hotel.

The Broncos and Carolina Panthers, who meet in Super Bowl 50, make their first public appearances at media day on Monday night.
