State media say a crowded tourist bus has overturned on a mountainous road in southwestern China, killing seven people and injuring 30 others.

Xinhua News Agency said the bus was overloaded and that officials are still investigating the cause of the accident Saturday in Songpan county in Sichuan province.

Traffic accidents are common in China because of poor driving habits, overloaded vehicles and bad road conditions.
