ST. PAUL — A Minnesota woman is in serious condition after a bus carrying her college lacrosse team veered off the Pennsylvania Turnpike and crashed head-on into a tree, killing a coach, the coach’s unborn child and the driver.

Amanda Michalski from the Minneapolis suburb of Coon Rapids is a freshman attacker for Seton Hall University. She was airlifted to the Penn State Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pa., after the crash Saturday.

Her lacrosse coach at Coon Rapids High School, Jeff DeJoy, said that her parents, Gary and Gretchen Michalski, of Coon Rapids, are now with her. He says he hasn’t been able to confirm the extent of her injuries.
