Lewisburg, PA (WOIO) -

A deadly crash on I-80 early Wednesday morning involving a Greyhound bus from New York City to Cleveland.

Greyhound spokesperson Alexandra Pedrini tells 19 Action News the bus and a tractor trailer collided near Lewisburg, PA around 1:45 a.m.

A woman was killed in the accident, and several others injured.

One passenger, Shara King said, "Blood was dripping from my face and I heard people screaming."

The injured passengers were taken to five local hospitals. Of the 49 passengers who were transported to area hospital, 38 have been treated and released. 

After passengers were treated and released from the area hospitals, they were transported by a different bus to Cleveland or their final destination.

"We're all lucky to come out alive. There was people in there injured and screaming," passenger Eli Troyer said.

"Once we figured out how to get the windows open passengers started jumping out of the windows," King tells 19 Action News.
