2 people died and many were seriously injured in a bus crash on Pennsylvania Turnpike at 9 am on Saturday, March 16, 2013. A tour bus accident lawyer should be retained immediately after an accident so a crash reconstruction team can be sent out to the scene. The charter bus was carrying the women's lacrosse team of Seton Hill University when it crashed near Carlisle, Pennsylvania. The Seton Hill team of 23 lacrosse players and their three coaches were heading to an NCAA-II match in Millersville University, Pa. The cause of the accident is not clear yet, but according to police, the bus went off the road and hit a tree. The driver and one of the coaches died in the crash. Three passengers sustained serious injuries and were taken by helicopter to Penn State Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pa. Nineteen others with minor injuries were transported to Carlisle Regional Medical Center, Harrisburg Hospital and Holy Spirit Hospital in Camp Hill, Pa. The bus was operated by Mlaker Charter & Tours, of Davidsville, Pennsylvania. The state Public Utility Commission, which regulates bus companies said that there were no prior accidents or violations involving the company that would raise a red flag. State police are investigating the crash.
