At least two dead in charter bus crash west of Dallas

IRVING - by KHOU 11 News

At least two people are dead and more than 40 hurt in a charter bus crash on northbound State Highway 161 west of Dallas.

The crash happened Thursday morning before 10 a.m.

The bus is overturned on its side and rescue crew members are currently pulling out trapped passengers. Other passengers are being treated on areas to the side of the wreckage. Both northbound and southbound lanes of 161 have been shut down.

"All I really saw from the distance was a bunch of smoke," said a witness who was driving on the southbound lanes of 161. "The bus must have hit something, turned on its side, crashed and slid all the way to the guardrail."

The witness said he saw one person trapped underneath the bus. He said rescue crews came to the scene about four to five minutes after the bus crashed.

Several ambulances and one CareFlite helicopter are at the scene. It is unknown how many people were injured in the crash.

The bus is owned by Cardinal Coach Line, based in Mansfield.
