LA GRANDE, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police reports at least one person has died in a Sunday morning bus crash along the westbound lanes of Interstate 84 east of Pendleton.
Authorities say the bus lost control at about 10:30 a.m. on the snow and ice covered lanes of the interstate near milepost 227.
The bus crashed through a guardrail and went down an embankment a few hundred feet before coming to a rest.
The State Police could not immediately confirm how many people were on the bus or how many were injured.
Pendleton Fire Chief Gary Woodson told the East Oregonian there could be 30 to 40 people on the bus, but he didn't know how many had been injured.
The bus crash was the second fatal crash in northeast Oregon on Sunday morning, due to icy conditions. A 69-year-old man died in a rollover accident at about 7:30 a.m. on I-84 near Stanfield.
