IRVING, Texas • A chartered bus overturned on a busy highway near Dallas on Thursday, killing at least two people and injuring several others, authorities said.
Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Lonny Haschel told KRLD radio that the bus slid off the busy highway in Irving, just east of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. He said two people were killed.
Video from the scene shows 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, some of whom were being wheeled to ambulances. Medical helicopters also were at the scene.
