YORK (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, James Billingsley, 83, of York, also known as “Dimples the Clown,” suffered a minor bump on the head. His passenger clown, Norman Clouser, 77. 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.
