Italy (QHA) - A coach has plunged off a flyover in southern Italy leaving at least 38 people dead, rescue services say.
The coach hit several vehicles before smashing through a parapet and toppling down a steep slope near the town of Avellino, in the Campania region. The coach was taking about 50 people, including children, back to Naples following a pilgrimage, BBC informs.
Reports say the bus smashed through a guardrail on the flyover and dropped 30m, coming to rest in heavy undergrowth.
The injured have been taken to hospitals in Avellino, the driver of the coach is said to be among the dead.
The cause of the accident is not clear.
