RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a Greyhound bus and car collided on a highway near Indiana's border with Ohio, killing one person and injuring at least 18 others.

Wayne County spokesman Jonathan Duke says the accident happened Sunday morning on interstate 70 near Richmond, which is about 70 miles east of Indianapolis.

Duke says one person was reportedly killed and 18 people were taken to hospitals. He didn't know the extent of the injuries.

Brandi Schroeder, an Indianapolis woman who drove past the accident scene, says the bus ended up off the shoulder of the highway's eastbound lane and the other vehicle lay crushed in the inbound lane. She says the vehicle was crushed so badly that she couldn't make out its wheels.

Duke says he didn't know where the bus was headed.
