Tour bus flips on Taiwan highway, killing 17 people

Local authorities are now investigating whether the bus was speeding or worn out driving at the time, according to reports.

According to the local media reports, the top of the bus had been torn-off due to the impact of the accident and its occupants were tossed onto the roadside.

The coach is said to have careered towards a barrier at a curve on the road. Officials are afraid the death toll might rise as the injured people are being treated in hospitals around Taiwan's capital city. Freeway authorities analyzing the bus' dashboard camera revealed that it was traveling 60 kph at the time it started to overturn, 20 kph over the exit ramp speed limit.

The bus was reported to be 19 years old and belonged to an agency that runs tours across Taiwan.
