One of the worst bus accidents in Oregon’s history occurred on December 30, 2012, just east of Pendleton, Oregon, in the Blue Mountains, in an area known as Deadman’s pass. Nine passengers died, and many more were injured. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration investigation found that driver Haeng Kyu Hwang had been on duty for 92 hours in the eight day stretch before the crash, exceeding the 70 hour federal limit. The cause of the crash is still unknown.
