CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a tour bus carrying a college's women's lacrosse team to a game went off a freeway in central Pennsylvania and crashed into a tree, killing the driver and sending 14 to hospitals, including some with serious injuries.

Pennsylvania Turnpike spokeswoman Renee Colborn says the bus was carrying 23 Seton Hill lacrosse players and three coaches when it crashed at about 9 a.m. Saturday on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

 

The driver died on scene and others were taken to hospitals, three by helicopters.

 

No other vehicle was involved in the crash. 

 

Officials are further looking into bus safety after a string of bus crashes. 

 

Seton Hill is a Catholic School  of about 2,500 students near Pittsburgh. The team was to play at Millersville  University, outside Lancaster, Pa., on Saturday.
