Bus accident kills 21 in Philippines
Manila, Dec 16: At least 21 people have been killed and several others injured after a bus fell off an elevated road onto a van in the Philippine capital, Manila, says a BBC report.

Police said the bus plunged onto a van below the road early on Monday.

Local media said most of those who died were on the bus.

It was not clear what caused the crash but local reports cited rain, heavy traffic and speed as possible causes.

"We saw the bus fall from there and it flew, and then it hit the van," said shop owner Edith Voluntate. "When we got close, we just saw a lot of people pinned under it."
