GEORGETOWN, Mass. (AP) - The driver of a bus carrying the University of Maine women's basketball team that ran off a highway north of Boston, leaving a player with a broken hand, remains in the hospital in serious condition.
Massachusetts State Police on Wednesday identified the driver of Tuesday night's crash in Georgetown, Mass., as 55-year-old Jeffrey Hamlin, of Charleston, Maine. He was flown to Boston Medical Center with undisclosed injuries.
