The collision happened as the SUV tried to merge onto Highway 82.

No one on the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority commuter bus was hurt. The Aspen Times reports Fegan was traveling in the SUV with two other people.

Fegan, 56, had a roster of star NBA clients. He had represented some of the biggest names in the NBA, including Dwight Howard, Amar’e Stoudemire and Shawn Marion.

A 29-year-old woman from California and Fegan’s 5-year-old son were in the SUV at the time of the collision.

Both were airlifted to a Denver hospital with serious injuries. The identity of the woman has not been released.

The transportation authority said one passenger was on the bus at the time.

The Colorado State Patrol said the bus driver couldn't avoid colliding with the merging SUV, which landed in the median.

The NBA tweeted condolences Sunday evening, saying the organization also mourns the loss.
