The September 14th accident occurred around 1:55 p.m., as a Greyhound bus traveled east on U.S. Highway 277 in Baylor County en route to Dallas from Denver, Colorado. The vehicle somehow collided with a pickup truck heading south on U.S. Highway 183, slid off the roadway, and overturned into a ditch.
