BANGKOK -- A passenger bus smashed through the guard rail on a bridge in northern Thailand and plunged into a ravine, killing 29 of the 33 people on board, police said Friday.
The bus fell 50 meters into the ravine from the Khun Pha Muang bridge on Thursday night, said Ban Klang district Deputy Chief Police Jiraphat Tanrak.
Lax vehicle maintenance, poor driver education and crowded roads mean deadly accidents are more common in Thailand. (AP)
