RICHMOND, Ind. - An official says an eastern Indiana hospital has treated about 20 people who were injured in a collision between a Greyhound bus and a car.

Reid Memorial Hospital spokesman Larry Price says about half of those treated at the Richmond hospital after the Sunday morning crash on nearby Interstate 70 have already been released. He says many had scrapes, cuts and bruises.

Wayne County spokesman Jonathan Duke said earlier Sunday that 18 people were transported by ground or air to hospitals and one person was reportedly killed. It wasn't clear if any of the injured were taken to other hospitals for treatment.

The male driver of the car was the sole fatality, reports CBS affiliate WISH-TV in Indianapolis.

The Greyhound was traveling to New York, according to the sign on the bus. However, officials are still reading the Greyhound manifest, reports WISH-TV.

Brandi Schroeder, an Indianapolis woman who drove past the accident scene, says the bus ended up off the highway's shoulder and the other vehicle was badly crushed.
