3 People Killed in Mississippi Casino Bus Crash

TUNICA, Miss. (AP) - Authorities in Mississippi say three people have died and several others have been injured after a casino bus overturned.

A Tunica County spokesman says the Harrah's Casino bus was taking a group of tourists to the airport when it crashed this morning. The tourists were traveling to catch a flight to South Carolina.

The accident happened at the intersection of Casino Center and Highway 61 in Tunica County, an area with several bustling casinos along the Mississippi River.

Forty-three people were on board the bus, including the driver.
