A woman was killed and dozens of others were hurt after a Greyhound bus rear-ended a tractor-trailer hauling baled garbage on Interstate 80 in Union County, Pa.

The crash occurred around 1:38 a.m. Wednesday morning, Oct. 9, in the westbound lane of I-80. Both the tractor-trailer and the bus had departed from New York City, according to a release from the Pennsylvania State Police. The bus was bound for Cleveland.

As of Wednesday afternoon, authorities had still not identified the woman who died. At least 44 of the 50 passengers on the bus were transported to area hospitals with injuries, the state patrol said.

According to the report, the tractor trailer was driven by 36-year-old Akos Gubica, of Monroe Township, N.J. Gubica was driving a blue 1990 Freightliner FLD120, hauling a 1993 Ravens flatbed trailer, when the rear of the trailer was struck by the 2000 Motorcoach driven by Sabrina Anderson, 42, of Cleveland. Upon impact, both vehicles left the road and came to rest on the north berm.

When reached for comment Thursday, Trooper Matthew Burrows said the cause of the accident has not been determined, and the investigation and accident reconstruction is underway.
