    A bus carrying the women’s lacrosse team from Seton Hall University crashed off the Pennsylvania Turnpike Saturday, killing the driver, the team’s pregnant coach and her unborn child. Many team members were injured when the bus crashed into a tree at the bottom of a grassy slope. The 23 on the bus were headed to a Saturday game at Millersville University, about 50 miles from the crash. A memorial mass was held Sunday night at Seton Hall, a Catholic university near Pittsburgh, for the 30-year-old coach who started there in 2012. A spokesperson for the bus company, operated by Mlaker Charter & Tours of Davidsville, Pa., told the press that complete safety records were not available Saturday on the particular bus. It also has been reported that another bus carrying college lacrosse players from a Vermont team was hit by a sports car that spun out of control on wet pavement in upstate New York, sending the bus on its side, according to press reports. One person in the Porsche reportedly died. The bus was carrying 34 players and three coaches from St. Michael’s College, a small Catholic liberal arts college in Colchester, Vermont, as well as the bus driver to Westchester County just north of New York City. And last month a bus carrying 42 high school students from the Philadelphia area and their chaperones slammed into an overpass in Boston, injuring 35, according to the press.
