Nepal bus crash kills 29: police
KATHMANDU: At least 29 people were killed and 12 injured when a bus veered off a narrow mountain road in thick fog in western Nepal on Saturday, a police officer said.
The vehicle tumbled 600 metres (2,000 feet) down a steep hill in Doti district at 2:00am (2015 GMT) after the driver lost control on the road to the southwestern plains bordering India, said Nara Bahadur Air, an officer in Doti.
"Twenty-nine passengers have been killed in the crash. Twelve passengers who have been seriously injured are being treated in hospital, 50 kilometres (31 miles) from the site," said Air.
The bus had 35 passengers registered at its last checkpoint but drivers on rural routes tend to pick up passengers on the way and police suspect the death toll could rise much higher when the crash site in Chhatiwan village is searched.
"The area where the accident occurred has light forest cover... We don't know the cause of the accident yet but locals have told us that it was foggy during the night," Air said.
Police were called when a man driving by the crash sight heard the screams of survivors, around half an hour after the crash, he added.
"We have deployed 50 policemen but they have told us the rescue efforts have been hampered because the bus is stuck on a precipice."
