CHURUBUSCO, Ind. (AP) — Police say one man has died and 16 other people have been injured after a motor coach collided head-on with an SUV in northeastern Indiana.

The Whitley County Sheriff’s Department says the SUV was traveling on U.S. 33 about 15 miles northwest of Fort Wayne when it suddenly sped up, went left of center and collided with the bus about 11:15 a.m. Thursday.
