CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

The driver of the bus that crashed along the Pennsylvania Turnpike on Saturday died of multiple traumatic blunt force injuries according to the autopsy released by the Cumberland County Coroner today.

Toxicology texts for Anthony Guaetta, 61, of Johnstown, are pending. He died at the scene of the accident after the bus he was driving, carrying the Seton Hill University lacrosse team, went off the road.

Lacrosse Coach Kristina Quigley, 30, of Greensburg also died of multiple traumatic blunt force injuries. Dauphin County Coroner Graham Hetrick said she suffered severe trauma from the crash but crews fought to keep her alive in order to try to save her unborn child.

Her unborn baby boy, Jackson Quigley, also died as a result of injuries to his mother during the crash.

Quigley was approximately six months pregnant. According to the Seton Hill University website, Quigley leaves behind her husband Glenn and young son Gavin.

The crash happened just before 9 a.m. Saturday when a bus that had been traveling east on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Carlisle went off the road and hit a tree. The bus was carrying the Seton Hill University lacrosse team to a Saturday afternoon game at Millersville University.

In addition to Quigley, three others were flown to Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Nineteen others were taken to area hospitals as a precaution and have since been released.

Amanda Michalski, a freshman on the Seton Hill University women's lacrosse team, is currently listed in serious condition at Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

Information about other passenger at Penn State Hershey Medical Center has not yet been released at the request of the family.

State Police Trooper Robert Hicks said Monday that there is no new information about the cause of the crash. He said the investigation is expected to take weeks.
