Bus accident in Turkey; 16 injured

An official says a tour bus carrying tourists from China has skidded and flipped while traveling on a wet road, injuring 14 of the passengers, their Turkish guide and the bus driver.

 

Tuncay Sonel, the governor for the district of Seydisehir, central Turkey, says the accident occurred Friday on a stretch of road between the Mediterranean coastal resort of Antalya and the city of Konya, home of the shrine of the 13th-century Sufi poet Rumi. He says two of the injured are in serious condition. Sonel says the driver lost control of the bus in slippery road conditions but that an investigation is under way. (AP)
