One of the nine people killed in the crash of a tour bus in Oregon has been identified as a Spanaway man.
Oregon State Police say Dale W. Osborn, 57, died in the crash of the bus that went over a 200-foot embankment after skidding on the icy surface of a rural road in Oregon Sunday.
Osborn’s wife, Darlene Osborn, was injured and is in the hospital.
Crash survivors were retrieving their passports and other belongings today 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 down the embankment.
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 on 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 Tuesday.
