Longtime sports agent DanFegan, whose client list included some big-name players, was killed Sunday morning near Aspen, Colo., when the SUV he was driving was hit by a bus on Highway 82.

Fegan's vehicle was struck by a Roaring Fork Transportation Authority bus along the highway around 9:22 a.m., according to the Colorado State Patrol.

According to reports, two other passengers in Fegan's vehicle, a 29-year-old woman, whose name was not released, and his 5-year-old son, were airlifted to a Denver hospital with serious injuries, according to Colorado State Trooper GabeEaston.

The drive and lone passenger on the bus, which was bound for Glenwood Springs, were "shaken up," bit not injured, according to RFTA CEO DanBlankenship.

"The bus didn't have time to avoid the collision, so it broadsided the other vehicle and knocked it into the median," Blankenship said.

Fegan, 56, was once one of the most-respected agents in the NBA, representing players such as Hakeem OlajuwonDeMarcusCousins, JohnWall, DeAndreJordanDwightHoward, RickyRubio, ChandlerParsons, NeneAndersonVarejao, Monta Ellis, Kris Humphries, Larry Sanders and Chris Dudley.

Forbes Magazine named Fegan as one of the top agents in the country in 2016.

He had a very public split last March with the Independent Sports & Entertainment agency. Fegan and the agency were involved in a lawsuit after he was fired.
