A bus full of tourists fell 200 feet after sliding off a highway during a tour of Oregon's Blue Mountain range, killing nine of its 48 passengers. Because many of the passengers, ranging in age from 7 to 74, were South Korean visitors to Oregon, police had difficulty identifying many of the victims. Some of the South Korean tourists spoke little English and were forced to leave their passports buried in snow at the crash site. Two officials from National Transportation Safety Board have been tasked with investigating the accident. It is unclear whether any of the victims or their families plan to bring civil litigation against the driver or his employer.
