Overcrowded bus tilts, plunges down a hill in Nepal; at least 30 killed

An overcrowded bus skidded off a road Tuesday in Nepal and plunged down a hill, killing at least 30 people and injuring 35 more, a police officer said.

People were riding on the roof of the packed bus when it tilted over — apparently due to the excess number of passengers — said Shiva Ram Gelal, chief district officer in Nepal’s Rasuwa District. The vehicle then slid about 200 meters (650 feet) down a hill.

Nepalese military troops, police officers and locals carried out a rescue operation after the crash, according to Gelal. (CNN)
