A funeral will be held Friday morning in Maryland for Seton Hill University lacrosse coach Kristina Quigley, who was killed Saturday when the team's bus crashed along the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

Family and friends will be received today and Thursday in the Connelly Funeral Home of Essex. Seton Hill spokeswoman Kary Coleman said a delegation from the university will attend the funeral in Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in Baltimore at 10:30 a.m. Friday. The school is arranging transportation for students, she said.

Quigley, 30, of Greensburg and bus driver Anthony Guaetta, 61, of Johnstown died of multiple traumatic injuries sustained in the crash, according to autopsies. Quigley's unborn son, Jackson, died of blood loss, the coroner said.

Toxicology tests for Guaetta are pending. A state police report showed he was wearing his lap and shoulder belt.

Guaetta was a graduate of Laurel Valley High School and St. Vincent College. He received a master's degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and was employed by Health Net Federal Services. He and his wife, Grace, have a daughter, Rosanna, and son, Joseph.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by the Frank Duca Funeral Home in Johnstown. A funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at St. Andrew Catholic Church.

State police are still Investigating the crash and have not determined what caused the Mlaker Charter & Tours bus to veer off the roadway, turnpike police said.

Police said the bus was traveling east when it veered off, hit an emergency call box and guardrail, then traveled 75 yards before smashing into a tree about 8:50 a.m. Saturday, a mile east of the Carlisle interchange.

The women's lacrosse team was en route to a game against Millersville University.

Millersville's womens lacrosse team is selling red sweat wristbands with gold embroidery that say “onelaxfamily” and “KQ” for $8. Proceeds will benefit a scholarship fund established for Gavin, the 2 12-year-old son of Quigley and her husband, Glenn.

More than $32,000 had been contributed by more than 650 donors by late Tuesday afternoon.

One player injured in the crash remains hospitalized.

Amanda Michalski, 18, a freshman from Coon Rapids, Minn., was listed in good condition in Penn State Hershey Medical Center.
