Anyone know the full story behind the cancellation of yesterday's event in Clayton, MO?

There was an accident involving a van transporting NHBB's equipment. I'm not sure where the accident was or exactly how serious it was, but I was informed that no one affiliated with NHBB was injured.

It bears mentioning that NHBB had absolutely nothing to do with this, since NHBB isn't running the National History Bee Middle School Competition through at least 2019. ACE, led by Eric Huff and Nick Clusserath is. I had no knowledge of the issue with the St. Louis event until Donald brought it to my attention.
