Six killed in Himachal accident

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.
