Survivors of Oregon bus crash prepare to go home

Survivors of a fatal bus crash on a rural Oregon highway are retrieving their passports and other belongings so they can finish their journey to Canada.

State police officers escorted some survivors one-by-one Tuesday to collect their property, which was strewn across a hillside as the tour bus careened 200 feet from a partly icy Interstate 84 near Pendleton over the weekend.

The Red Cross said many of the survivors are too scared to get on another bus, so a nearby car dealer offered to drive them in smaller passenger vehicles. Some were expected to begin the trip Wednesday.

At least 14 survivors remained hospitalized in three states Tuesday after the weekend crash that killed nine and injured 38 others.

State police and National Transportation Safety Board investigators were expected to finish an inspection of the bus on Tuesday.  (AP)
