Evacuee bus overturns, killing one

These people don’t need any more trauma visted upon them.

A bus carrying Katrina evacuees from New Orleans has overturned and rolled across a highway median, killing one man. The crash occurred in the northbound lane of Interstate 49 at Opelousas, Louisiana.

The newspaper Daily World of Opelousas reports on its Web site that at least ten people have been taken to hospitals. Several suffered critical injuries. A state police trooper says the driver lost control of the vehicle, but details are not known yet. The victims were being transported from the New Orleans Superdome.
