A passenger attacked the driver of a Dallas-bound Greyhound bus early Thursday morning, causing a crash on Interstate 10 in western Arizona that left 24 people injured, state police said.

The bus was heading east from Los Angeles when the crash occurred near Tonopah shortly before 2 a.m. Thursday.


Update, 2:57 p.m. Monday: A wreck involving an 18-wheeler caused big problems on westbound Interstate 30 near Sylvan Avenue in Dallas this morning.

“A car was trying to exit on Sylvan and hit the barrier," said Katrina Keys with TxDOT’s Horseshoe Project. "And then an 18-wheeler was trying to swerve out of the way and that’s when the 18-wheeler tipped over.  And that’s really what caused all the traffic backup.”
