    I stand to be corrected, but from the pictures I am assuming that the bus hit Eagle in the rear. It was real foggy this morning on the mt. and icy right on top.

    Blue Ridge Parkway summits very near there. its not for trucks so 250's out if you are west or near Charlottesville, there is no good pass across in that section. Might have to wait a bit.

    The visibility plus over speed for conditions probably prevented that kind of stopping anyway. Buses are really bad for schedule keeping and probably over speed to maintain it.
