DOLAN SPRINGS, AZ -- An annual road trip filled with fan events for Dallas Cowboys' staffers turned deadly over the weekend.

On Sunday morning, Arizona DPS troopers said the Cowboys' tour bus collided with a van carrying four people. All four passengers in the van died from their injuries.

It happened near Dolan Springs, AZ, which is about 50 miles from Las Vegas.

No charges have been filed at this time.

The "Road Trippin' 2016" page on the Cowboys' website shows there were only four people on the bus.

They include writer Mickey Spagnola,  videographer Jacob Walraven, bus driver Emory Tyler, and Rowdy the mascot.

Spagnola sent out a tweet early Monday morning saying, in part, "Just want to thank everyone for their well wishes and prayers. Our foursome is physically well."

Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, released the following statement:

“An accident involving loss of life is tragic.  We as an organization are deeply saddened, and our thoughts, prayers, and concerns at this time are with the family members and loved ones of all who were lost.”

Let's hope there is better news once training camp gets started.
