CHARLESTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say woman who was critically injured when a Chicago-bound Greyhound bus hit the back of a semi-truck in southwestern Michigan is showing improvement.

In all, authorities say 22 people were injured in the Thursday morning crash on westbound Interstate 94 in Kalamazoo County's Charleston Township. Most of the injuries were described as minor.

The sheriff's department says 65-year-old Cecillia Cheng of Darien, Ill., was a front-seat passenger on the bus. She was hospitalized in stable condition Friday after earlier being in critical condition.

The 64-year-old bus driver was hospitalized after the crash. The bus with 48 passengers was traveling from Toronto.

Authorities say it appears the truck was entering I-94 about 120 miles west of Detroit when it was hit.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
