PENDLETON, Ore. - Survivors of a deadly bus crash on a rural U.S. highway were retrieving their passports and other belongings from the scene Tuesday so they could finish their journey to Canada.
Police in Oregon escorted some survivors to collect their property, which was strewn across a hillside as their bus slid from the icy road. The crash killed nine people and injured at least 38.
The bus was returning to Vancouver, British Columbia, on the final leg of a tour of the western United States. Most of the passengers were Korean.
At least 14 survivors remained hospitalized.
Oregon State Police identified one victim as 57-year-old Dale William Osborn.
Police said the other victims, four men and four women, were of Asian descent, but authorities have not released the names.
Police said Monday they weren't sure how fast the bus was travelling before the crash.
The Red Cross said many survivors were too scared to get on another bus. A nearby car dealer offered to drive them in smaller vehicles.
