Deadly charter bus accident in North Texas

Posted: Updated:

At least two people are believed to be dead and dozens of other people injured after a charter bus accident in Irving, just outside of Dallas.

The bus was traveling northbound on Highway 161 when witnesses say they heard a loud pop and saw the bus roll several times before coming to rest in a grassy median.

At this time investigators are trying to rescue nearly 40 people who are still trapped on the bus.

Emergency crews fear some victims may be pinned underneath the bus.

The bus was en-route to a casino in Oklahoma.

As of 10:45 a.m. the Northbound lanes of Highway 161 remain closed
