Posted: Updated:
Oregon -

A charter bus crashed through a guardrail and went down an embankment about two-hundred feet yesterday along a interstate in Oregon. According to officials, nine people are dead, and 39 people were taken to the hospital. Some patients were removed from the scene while rope teams worked to retrieve people from the accident scene. Additionally, three fixed wing medical aircraft were being mobilized in order to move patients to out-of-area hospitals. An icy, snowy roadway is being cited as a possible factor as to why the charter bus lost control.
