One woman was killed and 44 others injured early Sunday when their long-distance bus crashed into a wall near Zurich, Xinhua reported.
The bus was en route from the Italian city of Genoa to Dusseldorf in Germany when it swerved and hit a wall on an icy motorway near Zurich, police said.
Three people were severely injured, and at least one of them is in critical condition, according to the police.
