Rain swamps Texas, Oklahoma
by UPI

SAN ANTONIO - Heavy holiday weekend rain in Texas and Oklahoma closed roadways, sent a bus dangling over a bridge and trapped 1,000 people at a campground.

In San Antonio, a Greyhound bus with 33 passengers aboard broke through a bridge railing and dangled over the Medina River after its driver lost control on the wet highway, the San Antonio Express-News reported.

"Kids were crying and grown men were freaking out," college student Valerie Roa told the Texas newspaper Sunday.

Passengers crawled out rear windows to safety.

In Fredericksburg, Texas, rescuers searched for a 22-year-old man who called his family Sunday to say his vehicle was stuck on a flooded bridge.

In Oklahoma, rain-driven Honey Creek stranded campers at Turner Falls Park, The Oklahoman reported.

"The park got to the flood stage around 3:30 a.m. Sunday," park Manager Tom Graham told the Oklahoma City newspaper. "Some of the campers have been evacuated, but there's probably a little over a thousand still in the park."

In Pittsburg County, Okla., a tractor-trailer hydroplaned and hit a pickup truck head-on, killing the pickup's driver Sunday, police said.
