Lewisburg, PA (WOIO) - A deadly crash on I-80 early Wednesday morning involving a Greyhound bus from New York City to Cleveland.
Greyhound spokesperson Alexandra Pedrini tells 19 Action News the bus and a tractor trailer collided near Lewisburg, PA around 1:45 a.m.
A woman was killed in the accident, and several others injured.
One passenger, Shara King said, "Blood was dripping from my face and I heard people screaming."
The injured passengers were taken to five local hospitals. Of the 49 passengers who were transported to area hospital, 38 have been treated and released.
After passengers were treated and released from the area hospitals, they were transported by a different bus to Cleveland or their final destination.
"We're all lucky to come out alive. There was people in there injured and screaming," passenger Eli Troyer said.
"Once we figured out how to get the windows open passengers started jumping out of the windows," King tells 19 Action News.
One of the buses arrived in Cleveland Wednesday afternoon with a bus load of victims. Another bus is set to arrive Wednesday evening.
Friends and family can contact Greyhound Family and Friends Hotline at 1-800-972-4583.
The cause of the accident has yet to be determined. 19 Action News has learned the bus driver has been with the Greyhound company for more than 12 years.
Greyhound is cooperating with local authorities, as well as conducting their own investigation.
Prayers for them and their loved ones.
FREEPER PING LISTS
We found out yesterday that a family friend of ours, Mark, was on the bus accident in Pennsylvania.
He was in Europe vacationing, flew to NYC, and took Greyhound bus to Cleveland (to minimize costs).
Last report, both of his hips were crushed and he lost a leg. He was able to move fingers on one hand.
Prayers up for him and his family.
Let him know there are people praying for his recovery.
Thank you, Dave.
May God protect Mark and his family from further harm. Let them heal from the physical and emotional damage. I pray that He will reveal Himself to Mark - so that Mark’s faith and trust is strengthened.
Let there be perfect Peace in their hearts and may they grow closer to God.
Let Jesus be glorified. Amen

I’m very sorry for your friend!
Las Vegas Dave, I’m so sorry to hear about your family friend. That’s terrible. I’ll remember Mark, his family and friends in my prayers.
Was he traveling with anyone? Are they okay?
Prayers lifted for Mark, for his family, for all those who love and worry about him, and for all those who are caring for him now and as he recovers.
I pray for comfort, strength and recovery... in Christ’s Holy Name.
Prayers and positive thoughts for Mark, his family, and all. What a terrible thing to happen. “Miracles of modern medicine” (and miracles of all kinds) do occur, still, and I will pray for all blessings. Thanks, LVD, for letting us know!
Our family friend Mark is in rehab in Cleveland. He has had many surgeries including last week.
Mark is now on his road to recovery!
