Massachusetts state police say a bus carrying University of Maine basketball players has crashed on a highway north of Boston.
    
Police say the driver has been seriously injured and is being taken by helicopter to a hospital. They say 22 students are being evaluated or treated for minor injuries.
    
Police say the bus was going southbound on Interstate 95 on Tuesday night when it crossed onto the northbound side and went into a wooded area near Georgetown, a town of about 8,000 residents.
    
State police say the bus was owned by the John T. Cyr & Sons Inc. bus line of Old Town, Maine. A man who answered the phone at the company's office says it's gathering information about the crash.
    
A state police car that stopped at the scene has been struck by another car.
