Casino Shuttle Bus Crashes On Interstate 20

At least one person died Sunday evening and dozens were injured when a shuttle bus returning to Dallas from a Louisiana casino ran off Interstate 20.

The driver and most of the 58 passengers were rushed to hospitals in Marshall, Longview and Shreveport, La., after the accident, which occurred just before 7 p.m. about three miles west of Marshall.

At least three of the injuries are life-threatening.

Officials at Shuttle King, the operator of the bus, said they would have no comment before Monday.

Earlier in the evening, the bus had picked up passengers from the Isle of Capri Casino in Shreveport and was en route to Dallas.

Witnesses say the bus driver was driving erratically shortly before the bus careened off Interstate 20 and ran into a wooded area.
