Pa. college lacrosse team's bus crashes, killing 2

CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) -  

   A tour bus carrying a college's women's lacrosse team to a game went off a freeway Saturday in central Pennsylvania and crashed into a tree, killing the driver and one passenger and sending others to hospitals, including some with serious injuries, authorities said.

   Pennsylvania Turnpike spokeswoman Renee Colborn says 23 Seton Hill lacrosse players and three coaches were aboard when the bus crashed at about 9 a.m. on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. It's unclear what caused the crash.

    The university plans to hold a memorial Mass on Sunday for the victims of the crash that killed the pregnant coach and the driver and injured others.

   The university said the 7 p.m. Sunday service in Saint Joseph Chapel would honor 30-year-old head coach Kristina Quigley of Greensburg, who was six months pregnant, as well as the driver and other people injured. 
 
   Quigley, a Baltimore native, is survived by her husband, Glenn, and young son, Gavin. The school said she was in her second season with the program and led the Griffins to 11 victories last year.
 
   The bus was carrying 23 people when it crashed Saturday morning on the Pennsylvania Turnpike while taking the team to a game at Millersville University.
