Woman killed as Greyhound bus hits car in Texas
(Reuters) -- A woman was killed and about 17 other people were hurt when a Greyhound bus crashed into a sports-utility vehicle that had stopped in a travel lane on a Texas interstate highway near the Dallas Cowboys' home stadium, police said on Sunday.
Officers in Arlington, Texas, received a call at about 5:30 a.m. about a blue SUV that had run into a barrier wall and was blocking the high-speed travel lane after having been seen swerving, Arlington Police Lieutenant Christopher Cook said. Shortly after, the Greyhound bus hit the vehicle, he added.

A woman who was in the SUV died and a man was taken to an area hospital with serious injuries, Cook said, adding that it was not clear which one was the driver.
The bus, en route to Amarillo from Dallas, had 40 passengers and a driver on board. Sixteen of the passengers were transported to area hospitals for minor injuries following the crash, Greyhound spokeswoman Lanesha Gipson said.
None of the bus passengers suffered life-threatening injuries, Cook said.
