Bus Crash in Taiwan Leaves 32 People Killed, 16 Injured
The daughter of the driver of the ill-fated Taiwanese bus, identified as Miss Kang Yi-jen, claimed that her father was overworked.
Highway police spokesman Ma Ling-wen said the speed limit on the ramp was 40 kph (25 mph) but it was not clear how fast the bus had been going.
"Some of the bodies were found metres away from the bus, along with a dozen seats apparently tossed out of the coach after its top was torn apart".
A video footage reported to be from a auto behind the bus, shows the ill-fated vehicle heading towards a bend in the road then disappearing off the edge of the highway.
Most of the passengers - senior citizens returning from a day trip to a popular cherry blossom viewing site - were trapped underneath the crushed vehicle on an exit ramp in the Nangang district of eastern Taipei, state media said on Monday. Among the victims, 30 people died at the scene while two died in the hospital. Investigators said the driver in that crash was drunk and had intentionally set the bus alight as it travelled to Taiwan's main airport.
