RICHMOND, Indiana (AP) -- A Greyhound bus and a car collided Sunday on an Indiana highway near the Ohio border, killing one person and injuring at least 18 others, an official said.

The accident happened Sunday morning on Interstate 70 near Richmond, which is about 70 miles (113 kilometers) east of Indianapolis. Authorities closed the eastbound lane, which was where the collision occurred.

Wayne County spokesman Jonathan Duke said one person was reportedly killed and 18 others were taken by ambulance or helicopter to hospitals. He didn't know the extent of the injuries.

Brandi Schroeder, who drove past the accident scene while returning home to Indianapolis from Ohio, said the bus ended up off the shoulder of the highway's eastbound lane and that the other vehicle lay crushed in the inbound lane. She said that vehicle had been so badly flattened that she couldn't make out its wheels or whether it had been a car or truck.

"I've seen a lot of accidents, and I've never seen anything like this," Schroeder told The Associated Press.

Duke said he didn't know where the bus had departed from or where it was headed, but photos of the mangled bus indicated it apparently was headed to New York City.
