ODOT Sued After Bus Crash

April 9, 2013 7:06 p.m.

Last December a charter bus from Vancouver, British Columbia, crashed on I-84 just east of Pendleton. The accident killed nine people and injured 38. Now lawyers representing a survivor, and the estates of three of the people who died, are suing the Oregon Department of Transportation. According to the Associated Press:

The lawsuit says the department was negligent for failing to warn drivers of unsafe conditions, not requiring commercial vehicles to taken another route, not adequately plowing and sanding snow, and failing to equip that stretch of the interstate with barriers strong enough to prevent a bus from leaving the roadway.
We'll talk to a local attorney about the legal precedence for this case.

Rare Salmon Disease in B.C.

Oct. 21, 2011 4:45 p.m.

A recent study in British Columbia found traces of a potentially deadly virus in two sockeye salmon in a remote inlet on the B.C. Coast. This is the first time infectious salmon anemia (ISA) has been found on the West Coast. When ISA was found in Atlantic salmon farms in Europe, it often killed over 70 percent of the fish. Salmon farming critics are quick to blame the farms for introducing the virus, but some scientists caution it's too soon determine the origin. Regardless of it's origins, the disease could have a devastating effect on the farming industry in the northwest, which farms Atlantic salmon because they don't die when they spawn. It's effect on pacific salmon is harder to predict. This is the first time the virus has been found on pacific salmon, so scientists are now trying to figure out if the virus is as lethal or communicable in pacific salmon as atlantic salmon.
