PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) — A hospital official says it appears 46 people were aboard a tour bus that crashed through a guardrail and down a slope on an icy stretch of interstate in northeastern Oregon, killing nine passengers.

Larry Blanc, a spokesman for St. Anthony Hospital in nearby Pendleton, said Monday that 14 of those aboard remain at St. Anthony, one in serious condition. Seven were discharged Sunday and are in the care of the Red Cross.
