Dangerous Icy Roads This Evening in the D.C. Area

Ten are dead in West Texas after a prison bus slid off an icy highway overpass, crashing down an embankment and colliding with a train.

The bus was carrying 12 prisoners and three corrections officers, according to Justice department spokesman Jason Clark.

Ector County Sheriff Mark Donaldson says the overpass on Interstate 20 was slick with ice Wednesday morning when the Texas Department of Criminal Justice bus left the roadway just west of Odessa.

Clark says the bus was taking the inmates from a prison in Abilene to another in El Paso.

A spokeswoman says Medical Center Hospital in Odessa is treating five patients but had no additional information.
