LATEST NEWS / BEIJING: At least 35 people were killed and 18 injured when a bus rolled after colliding with a car on a highway in northern China on Friday, China State Media reported.
The accident occurred near the port city of Tianjin, the official Xinhua news agency said, citing local authorities.
A city traffic management official quoted by Xinhua said the coach was speeding and many passengers were thrown out of the vehicle.
The fatal crash was the latest on China’s notoriously dangerous roads, where drivers often flout seldom-enforced traffic safety laws.
In September, nine people were killed and more than 20 injured when a passenger bus rear-ended a cement truck on a highway in eastern China’s Anhui province.
