Most — if not all — of the occupants in the Texas bus crash were wearing seat belts: NTSB

Most — if not all — of the occupants of a bus transporting churchgoers from a retreat in Texas were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash, according to the NTSB.

While the driver and front-seat passenger were equipped with standard three-point seat belts, the rear passenger seats were equipped with lap-only belts, said NTSB Investigator-in-Charge Jennifer Morrison at a press conference Friday.

Only one passenger on the bus — 64-year-old Rose Mary Harris — survived, according to authorities. Both Harris and the driver of a pickup truck that crashed into the crash, 20-year-old Jack Dillon Young, sustained serious injuries, the NTSB said on Friday afternoon.
