Hastings says 48 people, most of them Koreans, were on the bus that hit a concrete barrier, veered across both westbound lanes, went through a guardrail and plunged 200 feet down a bank. Hastings says authorities are working with the South Korean consulate to identify victims. Some survivors have been released from regional hospitals, and a few are in serious or critical condition. Their ages range from 7 to 74.(****END****)
