Turkey bus crash kills 21

23 January 2014, 15:09

Ankara - At least 21 people were killed on Thursday when a bus rolled over several times in the dead of night in central Turkey in one of the deadliest accidents in recent years.

The bus crashed in a town in Kayseri province at around 02:00 when its driver lost control because of icy road conditions and intense fog, according to press reports.

"The number of the dead has risen to 21, with one injured losing his life in hospital", Kayseri governor Orhan Duzgun told Turkish television.

The bus, which was travelling from Istanbul to the eastern province of Mus, was believed to have more than 40 people aboard at the time.

Duzgun said some of the passengers died when they jumped out of the vehicle's windows, adding that the death toll could rise as two people were seriously injured.

Road accidents are frequent in Turkey, largely due to careless driving, and are often fatal.
