NTSB to probe South Texas bus crash that left 8 dead, 44 hurt – Chicago Tribune

Federal authorities on Sunday will begin to investigate what caused a charter bus headed to a casino to crash in far South Texas, killing eight people and injuring 44 others in a one-vehicle rollover, officials said.

Seven people died at the scene Saturday on U.S. Highway 83 about 46 miles north of Laredo and another died later at a Laredo hospital, Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Conrad Hein said.

“The driver of the bus lost control and rolled over,” he said. “Everything’s real preliminary right now.”

Hein said the driver was among the survivors. His name and the names of passengers were not immediately available, Hein said.
