WHITE COUNTY, Ind.– Indiana State Police (ISP) say a crash involving a Greyhound bus and another vehicle resulted in two deaths Friday.
The crash occurred along northbound I-65 in White County, north of Lafayette. It happened near the 188 mile-marker.
According to the Indiana State Police, two people were killed in the three-vehicle crash.
Two vehicles were traveling south on I-65 when the vehicle in the left lane, a Mazda, crossed over into the right lane, clipping a Tahoe.
Police said the Tahoe crossed the median into the northbound lanes where it was struck by a Greyhound bus.
Two passengers in the Tahoe were killed, and the Mazda driver and passenger suffered no injuries.
Greyhound issued this statement:
“We can confirm an incident earlier today near Lafayette, Indiana on I-65 when a vehicle crossed from the southbound side of the highway and hit the Greyhound bus on the northbound lane. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved in today’s incident. Our priority is taking care of all the passengers, employees and families affected and we will continue to support local authorities with this matter.
