18 killed in Hong Kong's deadliest bus accident

A double-decker bus operated by Kowloon Motor Bus tipped over while traveling from Sha Tin to Tai Po Center, in Hong Kong’s New Territories. At least 18 people were killed in the accident, while 62 more were injured. Among those, 15 were hospitalized in serious condition, and 10 were deemed critical.

The crash was deadlier than any bus accident in Hong Kong since one in 2003 that killed 21 people.

Passengers said the driver was breaking the speed limit to make up for being behind schedule. Police did not immediately confirm the cause of the accident.
