Rescue Bus Overturns

I hate to follow up D’s beautiful, hopeful post with more bad news, but it seems like kind of an important story:
One Hurricane Katrina evacuee died and 17 others were injured when a bus carrying them from the Superdome swerved across a highway median and overturned Friday.

The accident happened when the driver lost control of the bus, but other details about what caused the wreck were not immediately known, said Trooper Willie Williams, spokesman for the state police.

Between 45 and 50 people were on the bus; every one was transported to a hospital, he said.

"We have multiple critical injuries and multiple serious injuries and some minor injuries," Williams said.
No words.
