China sleeper bus crashes in tunnel, killing 10

BEIJING (Reuters) - At least 10 people were killed and 36 injured on Thursday when a Chinese sleeper bus crashed inside a tunnel, Xinhua news agency said.

The 44-sleeper bus was carrying 46 people when it crashed in Lishui, in eastern Zhejiang province, shortly after midnight, killing 10 people on the spot.

China’s roads are the deadliest in the world, with accidents killing about 100,000 people a year.
