CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) -- Authorities say a tour bus carrying university lacrosse players went off a freeway in central Pennsylvania and crashed into a tree, killing the driver and injuring 14, some seriously.

Pennsylvania Turnpike spokeswoman Renee Colborn said 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 and 14 were taken to hospitals, three by helicopters.

Photos from the scene show the bus upright on the side of the road, part of its left side shorn off, though it's unclear whether that was from the impact or rescue operation.

Seton Hill University is a Catholic school near Pittsburgh. About 2,500 students attend.
