Rescue personnel remove a tarp after a passenger bus crashed approximately 8:50 am on the Pennsylvania Turnpike east bound lane at mile marker 227 in Middlesex Twp.

A bus carrying the Seton Hill University women's lacrosse team crashed at 9:00 a.m. Saturday, killing the driver, and at least one other and injuring 24. Officials said one of the dead was the driver, and the other is reportedly the team coach, who was pregnant. All other passengers were sent to area hospitals as a precaution, with three of the most severely injured being flown to Penn State Hershey Medical Center for treatment. No cause for the crash, which resulted from the bus veering off a turnpike and hitting a tree, has yet been found. The team was on its way to an afternoon game.
