The Lavangsdalen bus accident (Norwegian: Lavangsdalen-ulykken) was a bus crash in Northern Norway on 7 January 2011.

On the European route E8, a car headed north towards Tromsø was about to pass a bus headed south towards Nordkjosbotn, but entered the opposing lane and crashed into the bus. The bus rotated into a horizontal position, and other vehicles subsequently slammed into the bus. Five persons were killed.[1][2]
