9 killed in tour bus crash along icy US highway

The stretch of a rural US highway where a Canadian tour bus crashed through a guardrail and plummeted 100 feet down a steep embankment is so notorious that state transportation officials have published a specific advisory warning of its dangers.

 

Nine people were killed and more than two dozen injured when the charter bus veered out of control around 10:30 am Sunday on snow- and ice-covered lanes of Interstate 84 in eastern Oregon, according to the Oregon State Police. (AP)
