One Passenger And Bus Driver Dead In Crash Off Pennsylvania Turnpike, Seton Hill Lacrosse Team Members Injured (UPDATE)
Passengers are being treated at local hospitals near Carlisle, Pennsylvania where a Mlaker Charter and Tours bus carrying the Seton Hill Women’s Lacrosse Team went off the Pennsylvania Turnpike this morning, killing the driver and one passenger.
The team was en route to play Millersville University at 1:00pm.
Seton Hill University is a Catholic School in Greensburg, Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands. It has about twenty-five hundred students.
The bus apparently went off of the road and crashed into a tree but there is no word yet on what caused the driver to lose control. The bus company has sent a team that is still investigating. Pennsylvania State Police are not yet releasing any information.
This is the second large bus accident involving students in Pennsylvania in as many months. On February 3, 2013 a Calvary Coach bus carrying members of the Destined for a Dream Foundation was leaving the Harvard area when the driver attempted, unsuccessfully, to drive under an overpass with a ten-foot clearance. About three dozen high school students who had toured Harvard University, along with their chaperones, were injured.
March 17, 2013 7:00pm The dead have been identified as 30-year old Seton Hill Women’s Lacrosse Head Coach Kristina Quigley, who was pregnant. Anthony Guaetta, the 61-year old bus driver, was pronounced dead at the scene.
