Washington (dpa) - The pregnant coach of a Pennsylvania lacrosse team was killed Saturday when the bus carrying her team to a match crashed, officials said.

The 61-year-old driver was also killed when the vehicle veered off the highway, according to Megan Silverstrim, of the Cumberland County Department of Public Safety, in broadcast remarks.

The 30-year-old coach, who was six months pregnant, and her unborn child both died, Silverstrim said.

The Seton Hill University lacrosse team was travelling from its home base near Pittsburgh, in western Pennsylvania, for a match at Millersville University, in the eastern part of the state, media reports said.
