A bus that ran off a bridge, killing 17 people, on Sunday is towed from the scene of the accident in Liaoning province. The bus, hired by a Beijing company for its store in Kuandian county, drove off the bridge close to Dandong shortly before midnight. Fifteen others were injured, though the driver and a 13-year-old boy survived. The site was a traffic black spot, Xinhua said. Separately, a coach ran off a road and fell down a cliff in Qijiang township in Chongqing on Sunday, killing six passengers. Twenty-three others were injured.
