Texas Bus Crash Leads to Criminal Probe, Lawsuits

DALLAS (AP) - A deadly casino bus crash in North Texas has raised the possibility that the driver could face criminal charges and spawned more than a dozen lawsuits

The April 11 crash in Irving left three people dead and more than 40 injured. The bus was taking a group of seniors to an Oklahoma casino.

The Texas Department of Public Safety has determined that driver Loyd Rieve was at fault. It has asked the Dallas County district attorney's office to determine whether criminal charges are warranted.

The 65-year-old Rieve also was at the wheel of a bus in 1998 when it struck and killed a man who was trying to render aid at an accident scene. In that case, a grand jury declined to indict Rieve on a negligent homicide charge.
