The Latest: NTSB to check bus device for data in crash probe

Posted:

LAREDO, Texas (AP) -- National Transportation Safety Board investigators plan to analyze an electronic device aboard a charter bus to determine if it contains data that can provide details on a deadly crash.

NTSB spokesman Keith Holloway says investigators don't know what they'll find, but hope for data on speed and steering-wheel positioning. The OGA Charters bus crashed Saturday north of Laredo, killing eight people and injuring 44.

No other vehicles were involved.

Investigators will also continue examining the bus wreckage for evidence, and Holloway says they hope to interview the driver and other survivors of the crash this week.

Sgt. Johnny Hernandez of the Texas Department of Public Safety says the crash site on heavily traveled U.S. 83 will be closed at some point as part of the investigation.
