DALLAS - At least two people were killed on Thursday when a bus crashed and rolled over on a highway near Dallas, according to a Texas Highway Patrol spokesman.

The single-vehicle crash involved a bus carrying more than 30 people to a casino in Oklahoma, according to Trooper Lonny Haschel of the Texas Highway Patrol. Injured passengers were taken to area hospitals, he said.

The coach traveled off the shoulder, hit a barrier, went back across the roadway into a grassy median and struck a concrete divider, Haschel said.

"The bus rode up on top of that concrete divider for a short distance and then overturned and rolled on its right-hand side," he said.
