At least 35 killed in China bus accident

16 May 2015, 10:47

Beijing - At least 35 people have died when a bus apparently plunged off a cliff in China, reports say, in the latest deadly traffic incident in the country.

The accident in the Chunhua county, in the northern province of Shaanxi, killed 35 people with another 11 injured, the official Xinhua news agency said.

Pictures posted online, which could not be immediately verified, showed a white bus on its side at the bottom of a steep, partially-forested red cliff.

The injured were being treated and the cause of the crash was being investigated, said county authorities, who initially put the toll at 30.

Fatal road accidents are a serious problem in China, where traffic regulations are often flouted.

More than 200 000 people are killed on China's notoriously dangerous roads every year, the World Health Organisation said this month.
