In a recent CNN’s article written by Jason Hanna and AnneClaire Stapleton entitled: 2 dead, dozens sent to hospitals after Dallas-area bus crash, is reported that a bus taking people to Oklahoma casinos rolled over on a Dallas-area toll road. The crash occurred Thursday morning.
The bus overturned on President George Bush Turnpike in Irving, Texas after it had slid onto the other side of the highway, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety. It’s unclear what caused the bus to veer.
Unfortunately, there are many victims as a result of this accident. Two people died and at least 44 people were taken to hospitals and at least three were in critical conditions, officials said. As the chairman of emergency medicine at Dallas’ Parkland Memorial Hospital said, most of the passengers on the bus were elderly. The bus driver remained alive and was sent to the hospital with other passengers.
According to Dr. Alex Eastman, who treated some patients at Parkland, of the 15 people brought to that hospital, four were in critical condition and 11 had non-life-threatening injuries. Most of the injured were deeply shocked.
This charter bus accident is investigated by The National Transportation Safety Board.
