    A school bus carrying members and coaches of a Colorado high school football team crashed into a concrete pillar Sunday at Denver International Airport, killing the driver and injuring 18 passengers, authorities said. 

    Joe Ferdani, a spokesman for the Adams 12 Five Star Schools District, said 15 students from Legacy High School in Broomfield, north of Denver, were transported to four hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. Most have been treated and released, Ferdani said. Three coaches suffered "more serious injuries," he said.

    The driver, a woman who wasn't identified, was killed, Denver police Sgt. Michael W. Farr said.

    It wasn't immediately clear what caused the crash.
