LAREDO, Texas — Officials investigating a charter bus crash that killed eight people and injured 44 on a rain-slicked South Texas highway said the vehicle had seat belts only in the first row, KSAT 12 reports.

The OGA Charters bus crashed Saturday north of Laredo in rainy conditions. It was en route to a casino about 125 miles northwest of Laredo. No other vehicles were involved.
