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
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.
