Emergency crews respond to a bus crash on the Pennsylvania Turnpike on Saturday near Carlisle. A road trip by a college women's lacrosse team came to a horrifying end when the team bus veered off the turnpike and crashed into a tree, killing a pregnant coach, her unborn child, and the driver, and injuring others, authorities said. Seton Hill University team players and coaches were among the 23 people aboard when the bus crashed just before 9 a.m. Police could not immediately say what caused the accident. Coach Kristina Quigley, 30, was flown to a hospital but died there, Cumberland County authorities said. Her unborn child did not survive. The bus driver, Anthony Guaetta, 61, died at the scene. The team was headed to play Saturday at Millersville University. Seton Hill is a Catholic school of about 2,500 students near Pittsburgh.
