Nine people were killed and more than 20 injured when a tour bus in Oregon crashed on Sunday morning (December 30). The bus slammed through a guardrail and down a steep embankment. The bus, heading from Las Vegas Nevada to Vancouver, Canada, lost control on an icy interstate in rural Oregon and plunged over a cliff. About 40 people were on board when the bus fell 100-feet down into a ravine in freezing weather. The accident happened in an area the state transportation department says has some of the most changeable and severe weather conditions in the northwest. The bus is owned by "Mi Joo Tour And Travel" in Vancouver and was reportedly carrying Korean tourists from a Casino outing.
