(AP) - The Vancouver-based company whose bus crashed on an icy Oregon highway last month, killing nine passengers, has been banned from Canada roads, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure said Friday.

The ministry's Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement branch investigated Mi Joo Tour & Travel after the Dec. 30 crash east of Pendleton and determined it wasn't following British Columbia law regarding pre-trip inspections and driver hours of service. The ministry said the suspension of bus operations is effective immediately.
