((A weekend outing ends in tragedy ... for several busloads of Penn State University students heading back to school. They were returning from a New York shopping trip shortly after midnight Sunday, when their charter buses got caught in very dense fog... along this stretch of Interstate 80.

((sot: Pearl Mattison/Penn State Student)) - 14:37:49

"I was asleep and then I felt our bus like swerve off the road and our driver slammed on the brakes. We heard like a really loud crash next to us. Our driver got off to look at everything... and they told us to stay on the bus while ambulances came."
((track 2)) State troopers say the driver of one of the buses initially pulled over to the side of the road ... because of the intense fog. That then set off a chain reaction of rear-end collisions -- killing a student and a driver -- and injuring more than a hundred others.

((track 3)) Some of the shaken students sought temporary shelter at a nearby church, before boarding replacement buses back to campus. University officials are now offering them counseling.

((sot Graham B. Spanier/Penn State University President))

"Many of them were upset, some crying, some just disturbed about the general circumstances."
((track 4)) Students were greeted with hugs and smiles ... as they arrived back at Penn State and back to their studies. But still heavy on their minds, the bus ride they will never forget.

The visit is meant to highlight the problems and the progress in Bulgaria, which has moved toward democracy and market reforms.
