Eight inmates and two corrections officers died Wednesday when a prison bus skidded off an icy West Texas highway, slid down an embankment and collided with a passing freight train, authorities said. Justice department spokesman Jason Clark says the bus was carrying 12 prisoners and three corrections officers. Clark says the bus was taking the inmates from a prison in Abilene to another in El Paso.
