SB I-75 in Pasco reopened following fatal tour bus crash

SAN ANTONIO, Fla. -- A fatal multi-vehicle crash involving a tour bus, an SUV, and a sedan closed down the southbound lanes of I-75 in San Antonio for several hours Saturday afternoon.

The Pioneer tour bus was carrying 38 passengers from the Hiram College baseball team in Ohio when traffic suddenly slowed down drastically. The bus failed to slow down and crashed into the rear of the sedan, forcing the sedan to crash into the rear of an SUV.

The 81-year-old driver of the sedan has been identified as Emily Jones and she died at the scene of the crash. The passenger of the sedan sustained critical injuries and was airlifted to Bayonet Point.

The driver of the SUV had serious injuries and was transported to Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel.
