At least nine people are dead and 18 injured after a tour bus lost control and crashed down an embankment.

Police say the driver hit a patch of ice and crashed through a guardrail. Rescue crews used ropes to help get people back up to the interstate. It’s believed there were about 40 people on board the charter bus.

No word where it was coming from or its destination.
