A bus carrying the Seton Hill University women’s lacrosse team crashed Saturday morning, killing two people and sending several others to the hospital.
The bus was traveling along the Pennsylvania Turnpike in central Pennsylvania when it veered to the right, went over a guard rail and traveled across a grassy area before crashing into a tree, said Bill Capone, a spokesman for the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.
Seton Hill is a small Catholic university in Greensburg, Pa., east of Pittsburgh. According to its website the women’s lacrosse team was scheduled for a 1 p.m. match at Millersville University near Lancaster.
Twenty-seven people, including the driver, were on the bus en route to an afternoon match about 3-1/2 hours away. The crash happened shortly before 9 a.m. EDT.
