INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A bride and groom who were among 14 people injured in a shuttle bus crash that killed a member of their wedding party were married Saturday at an Indianapolis hospital just hours after the accident.

Lauren Magee and Tom Hanley were among seven people taken to Methodist Hospital for treatment, said Clarian Health spokeswoman Holly Vonderheit. After tending to the injured, she said, staff prepared a conference room for the wedding.

"It was an emotional ceremony," Vonderheit said.

About 100 people, including guests who had planned to celebrate the wedding at a downtown event center, gathered for the hospital ceremony, Vonderheit said. A nurse's husband brought a suit for the groom and other staff helped clean the bride's wedding dress before they exchanged vows, she said.

The crash happened about 2 p.m. Saturday, killing James Douglas, 29, police Lt. Jeff Duhamell said. The injured were taken to two hospitals with what were described as non-life threatening injuries.

Wishard Memorial Hospital spokesman Todd Harper said seven others were taken to that hospital. Security officers from Methodist picked up crash victims from Wishard to attend the ceremony, Vonderheit said.

The bus was knocked on its side by the crash, which happened as the wedding party was apparently heading to take photos downtown, Duhamell said. The driver of a sport utility vehicle that collided with the bus wasn't hurt.

One of the vehicles ran a red light, but Duhamell said police are still trying to determine who is at fault.
