A woman was killed Wednesday morning when a Greyhound bus from New York City collided with a transport truck on Interstate 80 in Pennsylvania. Dozens others were injured.

Greyhound Spokeswoman Alexandra Pedrini said 45 of the 50 people on the bus were taken to hospital, including the driver. Geisinger Medical Center said four of the 17 patients it received were critically injured, two were serious, and 11 fair. The other passengers were taken to four other hospitals.
