A Greyhound bus on Interstate 30 in Texas struck a car that had crashed into a median barrier on Sunday morning, killing a woman in the stalled out SUV and injuring more than a dozen passengers on the bus.

The accident happened about 5:30 a.m. near Arlington, said police spokesman Lt. Christopher Cook, according to The Associated Press.

Greyhound spokeswoman Lanesha Gipson said there were 40 passengers aboard the bus, which was headed from Dallas to Amarillo. Sixteen people sustained injuries that weren't life-threatening.

It wasn't clear if the deceased woman was the driver or passenger of the sport utility vehicle. Cook said a man in the vehicle was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Cook said that just minutes before the bus hit the vehicle, authorities had gotten a call that a vehicle being driven erratically had hit a concrete barrier and become disabled. He said authorities were trying to determine what caused the erratic driving.

The westbound lanes of Interstate 30 were closed for nearly six hours while police investigated the accident.

Gipson said another bus picked up the remaining passengers to take them on to Amarillo.
