About 25 dead after bus overturns amid record snowfall in China: report

By Agencies


Twenty-five people were killed and 13 injured Tuesday when a bus overturned on an icy road in a part of southwestern China clobbered by the heaviest snowfall in years, state media reported.

The bus careened off an express road near the town of Sanhe in Guizhou province in the morning, rolling down a 40-metre slope, Xinhua news agency reported.

The bus, which was travelling from the municipality of Chongqing in southwest China to the city of Shenzhen in the south, was made to carry 35 people but was carrying three more, the news agency said. (AFP)
