At least one person was killed and 30 injured, several seriously, when an Israeli bus skidded off a rain-slicked highway that leads from Jerusalem to the Dead Sea. The bus crashed through a security barrier and plunged into a ravine, trapping some of the passengers inside and flipping over repeatedly as it fell nearly 500 feet.
