COLFAX, Iowa (AP) - A charter bus carrying members of an Iowa college softball team has been involved in a multi-vehicle crash that closed part of Interstate 80.

The bus carrying students and coaches from Simpson College was headed east Friday morning on Interstate 80 near Colfax when a semi-trailer truck jack-knifed in front of it. School officials say bus passengers were not seriously injured.
 
Television station KCCI (http://bit.ly/X1pz3w ) reports the Iowa State Patrol says several semi-trailer trucks were involved in the crash. It is unclear if there are additional injuries. Eastbound lanes near the crash remain closed.
 
The crash is one of several after a major snowstorm dumped several inches of snow across the state.
 
Another bus later picked the team up for a tournament in Marquette, Mich.
