Van carrying clowns crashes in Pa., 1 clown hurtSeptember 12, 2013 @ 1:06 pm
YORK, Pa. (AP) - Good thing they weren't crammed in a clown car.
Pennsylvania police said a minivan with two clowns inside crashed outside the York Fair around 6 p.m. Wednesday when the driver missed the entrance and collided with an SUV while making a U-turn.
The minivan was also pulling a trailer with a clown car.
Police said the driver, 83-year-old James Billingsley of York, also known as "Dimples the Clown," suffered a minor bump on the head. His passenger clown, 77-year-old Norman Clouser of York, was unhurt.
Police said "Dimples" was wearing clown shoes but the oversized footwear apparently didn't play a role in the crash.
West York Borough police Sgt. Brad Thomas said both vehicles had to be towed. He didn't know if the clowns ever made it to the fair.
