(Newser) – A Greyhound bus struck a tractor-trailer early today on Interstate 80 in central Pennsylvania, killing a woman, critically injuring four other people, and sending dozens to the hospital, authorities say. The bus was extensively damaged when it hit the rear end of a flatbed trailer that was hauling garbage at about 1:30am in the westbound lanes of I-80 in Union County's White Deer Township, police say. Forty-five of the 50 people aboard the bus, including the driver, were taken to five hospitals, says a Greyhound spokeswoman. The bus was heading from New York City to Cleveland, and the driver had more than 12 years of experience. The Greyhound crash follows one in Ohio last month that injured dozens.
