Hong Kong bus overturns killing 18

18 killed in HK double-decker bus crash

Police have yet to comment on the cause of the crash.

"Multiple" people were killed when the Amtrak passenger train derailed, sending cars flying off a bridge and onto a busy interstate, officials said.

It is the bloodiest bus accident in Hong Kong for almost 15 years.

City leaders and the bus company will carry out separate investigations into the crash.

Chief Executive Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor speaks to reporters in the Prince of Wales Hospital after visiting the injured of the earlier bus overturns on February 10, 2018.

The Hospital Authority said 19 people were in a serious condition.

According to injured passengers, the bus was allegedly going faster than allowed after they had complained that the bus was 10 minutes behind schedule, local media reported. "And then it was like the tyre slipped, and the bus turned".

The bus has reportedly been on the road with over speed when the crash took place, with firefighters making maximum efforts to try and rescue passengers who remain stuck.

Windsor's unemployment rate sees significant drop
In the United States, there was a increase of 200,000 jobs in January and the unemployment rates was unchanged at 4.1 per cent. Economists look at the number of jobs in a community rather than the unemployment in determining an area's economic health.

Photos and footage from the scene showed the roof of the bus had been torn off. It was really chaotic in the bus.

This is one of the worst accidents of its kind in Hong Kong since 2003, when another double-decker bus plunged off a flyover after colliding with a truck, killing 21. "People fell on one another and got tossed from side to side".

Some victims were laid out nearby beneath sheets by emergency workers.

The bus was operated by the Kowloon Motor Bus Company (KMB) - the largest franchise in Hong Kong.
