A Porsche skidded across a wet highway in Upstate New York Tuesday, hitting a bus that was carrying a college lacrosse team and flipping it on its side, according to USA Today.

A passenger in the Porsche was killed but all 38 people on the bus — 34 lacrosse players, a trainer, two coaches and the driver — survived. Four players suffered minor injuries, USA Today reported. The victim in the Porsche was a 64-year-old woman, and the driver, a 65-year-old man, was in the hospital with critical injuries.

The lacrosse team from St. Michael’s College in Colchester, Vt., was en route to a match in Westchester County, N.Y. The team’s bus was on Interstate 87 in Clifton Park, N.Y., and it was raining, USA Today reported.

According to witnesses, the Porsche passed the bus but the driver lost control, and the car wound up right in the bus’s path, according to USA Today. The bus fell on its side and ended up in a ditch.

There was also a third vehicle involved in the accident.
