Bus Crash Kills 14, Injures Dozens

Posted:

Fourteen people are dead after a bus traveling from Houston to Missouri had a blow out Friday morning, and skidded off a highway near Sherman. 

More than 40 were injured, and more than a dozen are in critical condition. The bus was carrying a Vietnamese Catholic group headed to Missouri for a religious festival. The front tire of the bus blew just after midnight, causing the bus to smash into a guardrail, and then off of the highway.

According to reports, the company that operated the bus, Iguala BusMex of Houston, has lost authorization to travel outside of Texas.
