Ohio Team Bus Collides With Plow; 1 Killed, 4 Hurt
BUCYRUS, Ohio (AP) -- A bus carrying members of a college wrestling team has collided with a snowplow in Ohio and killed a 52 year old athletic trainer.

The State Highway Patrol says the University of Mount Union bus was in the far right lane and passing the left-lane plow late Tuesday in north-central Ohio.

Daniel Gorman, of Hartville, was pronounced dead at a hospital. The university identified him as director of athletic training and associate professor of human performance and sports business.

Troopers say four other people were treated for minor injuries, including a 19-year-old wrestler and the head coach.

The snowplow driver wasn't hurt. The bus was returning to the school in Alliance after a meet.

Several inches of snow had fallen.
