Oregon bus crash survivors to resume Vancouver trip
Oregon car dealer offers to drive survivors to Vancouver in SUVs
Some of the survivors of Sunday's fatal bus crash in northeastern Oregon are expected to resume their journey to Vancouver today.
The Red Cross says a number of the survivors are afraid to get aboard another bus.
So a Ford dealer in La Grande, Ore., is offering to drive them to Vancouver in passenger vehicles, including four-wheel-drive sport utility vehicles.
Nine people were killed and 38 were injured on Sunday when a tour bus enroute to Vancouver, B.C., flipped over a guardrail and plummeted more than 60 metres down an embankment west of an area called Deadman Pass on a stretch of Interstate 84 in Oregon.
Names of victims released
Of the nine people killed in the crash, five have been named by the Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office and the Oregon State Police.
On Tuesday, police identified 57-year-old Dale Osborn of Spanaway, Wash., as one of the nine victims.
On Wednesday, police released the names of four more victims killed in Sunday's crash.
Oun Hong Jung, 87, and his wife, Joong Wha Kim, 63, were named as two of the victims. Jung and Kim were from Korea and reportedly staying with relatives in Bothell, Wash.
A 75-year-old woman, Yongho Lee, was also named. Lee was from Lynnwood, Wash.
Girl staying in B.C. killed in crash
Police also released the name of a young B.C.-based victim.
Youmin Kim, 11, was from South Korea. Police said she had been staying with a family in B.C.
Police said the other four fatalities — three men and one woman — are all of Asian descent.
Of the more than three dozen people injured, 14 remain in hospital.
The tour bus, owned by Mi Joo Tour and Travel in Vancouver, was on the final leg of a nine-day tour of the western United States.
