SAN MATEO, Calif. -- A celebrated burlesque performer was killed and her husband critically injured in a crash over the weekend, when a party bus ran head-on into the couple’s car as it was stopped on a highway south of San Francisco, authorities said.

The party bus carrying 18 people hit the couple's Honda after it stopped. Two other cars were involved in the crash, but no injuries were reported in those vehicles.

The nine people hurt in the bus had minor-to-moderate injuries. The southbound side of U.S. 101 was closed for about two hours for the investigation.

The bus was equipped with seatbelts, but California Highway Patrol Officer Art Montiel did not know how many passengers were wearing them at the time of the crash. Bus passengers in California are not required to wear seatbelts, he said.

It was not immediately clear what company owned the bus, or who was using it.

The crash in Redwood City about 25 miles south of San Francisco was just a few miles from the San Mateo Bridge, where five women heading to a bridal party were killed in a limousine fire three weeks ago.
