PLAINFIELD, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say one person has died and about 10 others have been injured when a bus carrying FFA members collided with two semitrailers and a fourth vehicle in central Indiana.

Police say the fatality did not occur on the bus returning the FFA members from the organization’s national convention in Indianapolis to Missouri. Seven people from the bus were in stable condition at a hospital.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Joe Watts said the injuries are not life-threatening.

The crash occurred Friday afternoon on Interstate 70 about 25 miles west of Indianapolis and closed the highway’s westbound lanes for several hours.
