KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) — A bus carrying a wedding party has rolled off a mountain highway in Nepal, killing 15 people and injuring another 22.
Government administrator Navraj Baral says the bus veered off the Sidhartha highway near Chiripani village Sunday night and rolled for 300 meters (1,000 feet). Police and local villagers managed to help the injured and transport them to hospitals in nearby cities.
Police are investigating the accident. Both the bride and groom survived the accident but are badly hurt.
Accidents in Nepal are generally blamed on poorly maintained roads and vehicles.
