    A charter bus ran off a highway overpass north of Dallas and crashed onto its side on a roadway below, authorities said. Reports said as many as 13 were killed.

    The bus carrying 55 people to Missouri from Houston may have blown a tire, said Sherman police Lt. Robert Fair.

    The Dallas Morning News and KHOU-TV quoted Sherman police as saying 12 adults died at the scene and another died at a Dallas hospital.

    The Herald Democrat of Sherman reported the bus came to a rest on its right side in the northbound lane of an access road below U.S. 75.

    The accident happened at 12:45 a.m. Friday, Fair said. Scores of injured were being rushed to Sherman and Dallas hospitals via helicopter ambulances.

    This reminds me of the bus crash in Atlanta about a year ago involving a college baseball team from Ohio. It happened in much the same way. Prayers for the families involved in this, just horrible.

    Good grief - the bus was unlicensed and the tire had been illegally retread. Neither company (BusMex or Angel Tours) was authorized to operate carriers. (unsatisfactory review)

    "God called them home"? No; sounds like negligence and murder to me. Terrible.

    This is terrible. I heard this on the news this morning, but I didn't know these details.

    I with you, it sounds like negligence and murder.
