Houston, TX – The estate of one of 17 people killed on a trip to a religious festival has filed a lawsuit against the driver, owner and manufacturer of the bus that blew a tire and skidded off the highway.
The lawsuit filed late yesterday in Harris County seeks unspecified damages, and is at least the second lawsuit stemming from the Aug. 8 crash in Sherman that injured the 38 other people on board.
The suit was filed on behalf of Cham Nguyen, a parishioner who was killed when the bus operated by Angel Tours crashed on its way to Missouri.
Wichita Falls, TX – Heavy rains overnight have flooded some major roads in the Wichita Falls area.
A flash flood warning was in effect a region from Decatur to Wichita Falls early Tuesday. Standing water left some stretches of roads and highways impassable. Among those were parts of Interstate 44 between Wichita Falls and Burkburnett.
In Clay County, a sheriff's dispatcher reported parts of State Highway 79 were underwater but ``still drivable.''
Oklahoma City, OK – Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry says there is ``still a good chance'' that Barack Obama will visit Oklahoma before the Nov. 4 general election, despite the fact that the state will likely vote Republican in the presidential race.
Henry says he and University of Oklahoma President David Boren are continuing to work to persuade Obama to keep a pledge to visit the state.
The Democratic governor acknowledged the likelihood that Republican John McCain will win Oklahoma's seven electoral votes.
