9 killed in tour bus crash along Oregon highway
A tour bus careened through a guardrail along an icy highway and 100 feet (30.5 meters) down a steep embankment, killing nine people and injuring more than 20 others, authorities said.


The charter bus carrying about 40 people lost control Sunday around 10:30 am on snow- and ice-covered lanes of Interstate 84 in a rural area of eastern Oregon, according to the Oregon State Police. The bus crashed near the start of a 7-mile (11.3-kilometer) section of road that winds down a hill. (AP)
