14 killed, several injured in north-eastern Spain tour bus crash

At least 14 people were killed as a packed tour bus overturned and crashed into another vehicle on a highway in north-eastern Spain, rescue services said Sunday.

The accident took place near the port city of Tarragona.

There were more than 50 international students on the bus, Spanish news agency Efe reported, and they were returning from a festival in Valencia.

Several passengers were injured, but there was no immediate confirmation on the number. It also wasn't clear which countries the victims were from.

Broadcaster TV3 reported that the driver lost control of the bus. It then crashed through a median, overturned and collided with a vehicle in the opposite lane.
