At least 27 children dead after school bus skids off mountain in India

Initial reports indicated that the bus driver was speeding and lost control at the edge of the gorge, with the bus crashing some 200 feet to the ground below.

The accident occurred in the Kangra Valley, about 500 kilometers (300 miles) north of New Delhi.

India’s roads, particularly in the hills, have long been feared for their deep potholes, reckless drivers and, very often, a lack of guardrails. Fatal accidents are common.

Rescuers were still digging through the wreckage after nightfall looking for more survivors.
