Can anyone tell me the exact location of the deadly '72 bus crash in Bean Station? It was a huge story back when I was in high school. I travel 11-W weekly and I just wonder if that section of the road is still there.

I grew up in Bean Station and was ran over by a car and broke my leg when I was six. I was in the hospital with some of the survivors of the 11w bloody hwy bus crash of 1972. If i'm not mistaken the bus was actually buried somewhere in Bean station because of all the terrible remains inside the bus.

no,,,bus was hauled away on a low-boy tractor-trailer,all remains were removed i'm sure,,don't think it would have been buried with body/body parts in it
