A devastating OGA Charters bus crash on U.S. 83 in South Texas has resulted in the deaths of 8 passengers and has left around 40 people injured. Webb County officials have reported that the bus originated in the Rio Grande Valley and was on its way to the Kickapoo Lucky Casino Hotel in Eagle Pass, which is about 125 miles northwest of Laredo.

The highway at the scene of the one-vehicle rollover accident remained closed this afternoon as emergency crews and investigators continued their work at the site.

It is always tragic to hear about accidents on Texas highways, especially those involving high-volume passenger vehicles, like buses. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the families of those involved.
