KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) — A bus veered off a mountain highway in Nepal and plunged into a river, killing 14 people and injuring seven others.
Government administrator Shiva Raj Joshi says the bus skidded off the Sidhartha highway before dawn Thursday and rolled 300 meters (990 feet) before it plunged into the Bhalukhola river in Palpa district.
Twelve people were killed at the crash site and two more died in the hospital.
The crash occurred near Chidipani, a village 320 kilometers (200 miles) northwest of the capital, Katmandu.
