(Newser) – One sour note from today's celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream Speech": The bus carrying his family got into an accident afterward, reports TMZ. It doesn't appear any serious injuries were involved, though the driver was taken to a DC hospital. Witnesses say the driver had to slam on the brakes and swerve to avoid a vehicle that ran a red light. Passengers included MLK's 85-year-old sister and several grandchildren. One celeb note: Omarosa Manigault—yes, the Omarosa made famous in Donald Trump's Apprentice show—was aboard the bus and tweeted that she banged her head but is OK.

When will Al Sharpton show up to blame somebody for this accident?

Why would people as noteworthy and prestigious as the King family want a reality-show loser/diva/bitch like Omarosa traveling with them. Too bad she only hit her head. She should have done the world a favor and just died.
