(AP) — A bus carrying members of a college bowling team crashed Thursday morning along a southern Indiana highway while en route to a tournament in Tennessee, injuring numerous students, officials said.

Besides the driver, 2o other people were on board, including 16 members of the bowling teams, when the bus swerved off Interstate 65 near Louisville, Kentucky, on its way to the USBC Sectional Competition in Smyrna, Tennessee. Eight people suffered minor injuries, while an unknown number in more serious condition had to be airlifted to University of Louisville Hospital, Huls said. The accident happened just north of Henryville, about 20 miles north of Louisville, Kentucky. “We don’t know the cause but the bus did drive off the left side of the roadway and crossed back over both lanes before going off the right side of the road. He said school officials did not immediately know the extent of the injuries and had not determined how many and which coaching staff were aboard the bus. Mackovic said the hospital was treating the bus’ 76-year-old driver, and looking into whether he had suffered a heart attack or stroke before the crash.

As law enforcement and emergency personnel respond to this situation, we urge all Hoosiers to hold these men and women in their thoughts and prayers.”
