A car that collided with a Greyhound bus on an Indiana highway, killing the car’s driver and injuring 19 people on the bus, had just been stolen and was headed in the wrong direction, authorities said.

Phillip Lloyd, the driver of the stolen 1999 Ford Mustang, died at the scene of the collision yesterday on Interstate 70 near Richmond, Wayne County Sheriff Jeff Cappa said. Lloyd was from Richmond, which is about 70 miles east of Indianapolis and near the Ohio border. “It had been reported stolen from the Love’s truck stop . . . just prior to the crash,” Cappa said.

The bus, which was carrying the driver and 23 passengers when it was struck, was headed from St. Louis to New York City.
