Deadly Bus Accident Killed At Least Two People

Authorities said at least two people were dead after a charted bus overturned on a North Texas highway.

Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Lonny Haschel said the bus was on its way to a casino when it slid off the busy highway Thursday morning in Irving, just east of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

Hachel said two people were killed and several others were injured.  About 45 people were on board and most of them were not wearing seatbelts.

A passenger on the bus that survived said that they were piled on top of each other after the crash

happened.

The bus belongs to Cardinal Coach Line. A man who answered the phone at the company confirmed the bus' ownership, but declined further comment.

The bus tipped on its side in the center median along State Highway 161.

Emergency workers were using emergency exits on top of the bus to get to passengers.
