At least 29 people were killed and four badly injured when a bus plunged into a deep ravine in northeast Thailand, police said Friday.
The accident occurred around midnight Thursday-Friday in Lom Sak district, Phetchabun province while the bus was en route to the northern province of Chiang Rai.
“We suspect the bus driver fell asleep,” Major General Sukit Samana, police commander of Phetchabun province, told AFP.
“We found 28 bodies in the ravine, which is about 30 meters (100 feet) deep. And one died at the hospital,” he said. (AFP)
