Two Dead, Dozens Injured in TX Bus Crash

A charter bus overturned on a Dallas-area turnpike Thursday morning, killing two people and injuring dozens more.

The bus was bound for casinos in Oklahoma when it crashed in Irving, CNN reported (http://bit.ly/ZpD2ys). At least 36 people were transported to hospitals, and at least three were critically injured.

The bus went off the right side of the road, hit a barrier, swerved left across lanes of traffic and struck a concrete median in a grassy area. No other vehicles were involved in crash.
