IRVING, Texas —

Federal investigators are working to find what caused a charter bus crash loaded with elderly casino-goers near Dallas, killing two and injuring 41.

Among those killed was the organizer of the trip to an Oklahoma casino.

Witnesses say the Cardinal Coach Line bus with 45 people was heading north on the President George Bush Turnpike in Irving when it veered suddenly across the highway, struck two concrete barriers and toppled onto the center median.

The Texas Department of Public Safety identified the dead as 69-year-old Paula Hahn, of Fort Worth, and 81-year-old Sue Taylor, of Hurst, a Fort Worth suburb.

Family members say Taylor, known to passengers as "Casino Sue," had organized such trips for about 10 years.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.
