(CNN) — The pregnant coach of the Seton Hill University women’s lacrosse team was among two people killed Saturday when the bus they were on veered off the highway and crashed into a tree in southern Pennsylvania, authorities said.

Kristina Quigley, 30, who was six months pregnant with a boy, died from injuries at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, according to the Cumberland County Department of Public Safety.

“Her unborn child did not survive,” the county agency said.

The 61-year-old bus driver, Anthony Guaetta, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The bus was carrying 23 people, who were players or associated with team, when it crashed, authorities said.

Three individuals — a figure that does not include the driver, but likely includes Quigley — were transported to Penn State Hershey Medical Center with serious injuries, the university said in a statement. Others received treatment for minor injuries, with eight going to Carlisle Regional Medical Center, seven to Harrisburg Hospital and four to Holy Spirit Hospital in Camp Hill.
