One person was killed Tuesday night in a traffic accident involving a car and bus carrying the Lehigh University men's and women's rowing teams, but no major injuries to students have been reported.

Officials in Lehigh County said the crash happened on U.S. Route 22 near the Lehigh-Northampton county line. The bus flipped onto its roof after colliding with the car, the Morning Call newspaper reports.
