By Associated Press
CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Police say one person died when a bus carrying a college lacrosse team from Vermont hit a sports car that spun out of control on a wet highway in Clifton Park.
State Police Lt. Greg Thomas says the accident happened just before noon Tuesday on Interstate 87 in Saratoga County.
He says a 64-year-old woman was killed when the bus hit the car. The 65-year-old man who was driving is in critical condition.
Police say four players on the St. Michael's College team bus were treated for minor injuries.
They're among 34 players, three coaches and a driver headed to a game in a New York City suburb. The bus landed on its side off the road.
A van was also damaged.
