Shimla: Six people were killed and 25 injured on Friday when a private bus skidded off the road and rolled down a gorge in Himachal Pradesh’s Shimla district, police said.
The accident took place at Machhada bridge near Bhadrash, around 125 km from here.
Twenty-five people were admitted to the government hospital in Rampur town. Some were referred to the Indira Gandhi Medical College and Hospital here.
Most of the dead — like the injured — were locals.
Survivors said the driver probably lost control over the vehicle while negotiating a curve.
Locals started rescue operations before the authorities could reach the spot.
