    A 74-year-old passenger who broke several ribs in a deadly bus crash near Dallas has sued the company operating the vehicle.

    An attorney for Charlotte Reed, of Fort Worth, filed a negligence lawsuit Monday in Dallas against Cardinal Coach Lines Inc., of Mansfield.

    Matt Biran, owner of Cardinal Coach Lines, didn't immediately comment on the lawsuit.

    The crash killed two passengers and left more than 40 injured on a trip to a casino in Oklahoma.

    State Trooper Sgt. Lonny Haschel said investigators are trying to determine what led to the crash where the bus struck a barrier wall before sliding on its side along the President George Bush Turnpike in Irving.

    Reed's attorney, Tim Maloney, apparently filed the first lawsuit in the crash and said he did so so that his office can begin to investigate.
