    Sad, however, not unexpected in winter. Many of these tour operators also take unnecessary risks by chartering groups in bad weather.

    :(

    MOO

    I hope they weren't using that for people who thought they might have had a spinal injury.

    Survivors, emergency responders describe bus crash near Pendleton that killed nine, injured at least 36

    http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-northwest-news/index.ssf/2012/12/survivors_emergency_responders.html

    The 2 teens were the only ones that showed up at the emergency shelter. I wonder if they were traveling with family. They 17 year old spoke through a translator. Imagine being in a different country after an accident, and not able to speak the language. I presume that the Red Cross brought in a Korean translator for them.

    As always, thank you to the emergency responders, the Red Cross and the local communities.

    My thoughts are with the family and loved ones of those killed or badly injured.

    'Beside me was a body part': Harrowing tales from survivors of the Oregon tour bus crash which killed nine and left 26 injured as it plunged off the road at 'Deadman Pass'.

    Survivors of the deadly bus crash along an icy Oregon highway is recounting the horror of the wreck that has claimed nine lives on Sunday.

    Aboard the charter bus were 48 passengers, some of them exchange students from South Korea.

    One of those students was Jaemin Seo, 23, who thought that he was the sole survivor after he had been thrown out of the bus through a broken window.

    From above link:

    The Oregonian quoted one survivor, 25-year-old Yoo Byung Woo, as saying he and some other passengers thought the driver was 'going too fast.'

    'I worried about the bus,' Yoo said, adding it was snowing and foggy at the time. He said one rider was frightened and asked if they could take another route.

    Yoo said rocks smashed through windows after the bus crashed through the guard rail and rolled down. The NTSB said the bus rolled at least once.
