At least 29 people died and 11 others injured in a bus crash in Kalikot in remote western part of Nepal Monday night, a witness said Tuesday, Xinhua reported.
Sitaram Pandey, a local resident, said the bus fell some 250 meters below the road and plunged into a river.
"The bus apparently tried to move back after it failed to make a complete turn in the narrow highway. As it was backing, the bus fell down the road," Pandey said.
The injured are being treated in a local hospital.
