Just hearing the details of the horrific tour bus crash off I-84 in Oregon is enough to give you the chills, but seeing the visuals adds a whole new dimension of terror to the sad event. Video of the accident, from various different viewpoints, is going around the web today, in the wake of the crash that killed 9 people and injured 26, mostly Korean tourists who were traveling from a Las Vegas casino to Vancouver, Canada. What a horrible end to what started out as a fun and carefree holiday for these international visitors.
The bus crashed along a seven-mile section of downhill road that was slicked over with ice and snow, making the traveling conditions less than optimal. The bus driver apparently lost control of the bus, which hit a useless steel guardrail before it went toppling down the hill, leaving a long black scar in the side of the mountain. Can you imagine being on that bus, trying to hold on to your seat as the bus careened downward? Rescuers perilously tracked down this pathway to get to the wrecked bus, which landed right-side up but badly smashed up.
Check out this video, which shows several different views of the crash, and see if you agree this was the bus ride from hell:
