Maine AD: Coach May Have Taken Wheel Of Crashed Bus

BOSTON -  While police continue to gather information about the bus crash that injured members of the University of Maine women's basketball team, at least one report says a coach may have helped keep the crash from being worse. 
UMaine athletic director Steve Abbott tells New England Cable News that one of the coaches on board the bus may have taken the wheel and steered the bus to safety after the driver passed out due to an apparent medical issue. 
The state police say they plan to review black box data from the bus today as they continue to investigate what caused the bus to veer across the median of Interstate 95 and down an embankment on the opposite side of the highway. 
Twenty-two passengers were taken to three different hospitals for treatment of minor injuries, while the bus driver was flown to Boston Medical Center, where state police said he was conscious and answering questions early this morning.
