(THE OREGONIAN) Nine people are dead and at least 39 people injured after a tour bus crashed down a steep, snow-covered embankment near Pendleton on Sunday morning.

Emergency responders described a precarious scene, with rescuers using high-angle techniques and an all-terrain vehicle to carefully maneuver injured passengers and bodies up Cabbage Hill along Deadman Pass.

“‘Organized chaos’ is how I would describe it,” said Pendleton Fire Chief Gary Woodson, who was on scene just minutes after the accident.
