DALLAS, Texas -

The driver involved in a fatal Texas bus crash has told authorities he may have blacked out in the moments before the bus careened off the roadway and struck a concrete barrier.

A preliminary report Monday by the Texas Department of Public Safety says 65-year-old Loyd Rieve indicated he may have lost consciousness. The report found no defect with the Cardinal Coach Line bus and instead cited Rieve's failure to maintain his lane while driving April 11 in Irving.

The bus was taking senior citizens to a casino in Oklahoma.

Two people were killed and more than 40 hurt in the aftermath. Haschel said a third passenger died Sunday.

Rieve was not immediately available for comment. A phone message left with Cardinal Coach Line was not returned.
