An OGA Charters bus crash traveling from the Rio Grande Valley tragically killed 8 passengers and injured the remaining 44 while traveling on U.S. 83 to Kickapoo Lucky Eagle Casino on May 14, 2016.
The rollover occurred just north of Laredo.
The bus company, OGA Charters, which is based out of San Juan in Hidalgo County, has a history of maintenance problems and driver safety violations, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
While the cause of the crash is yet to be determined, the fact that this was a “single vehicle collision” highly suggests that driver error played a role, either because he was driving the bus while fatigued or because the bus was improperly maintained.
