On Saturday, Reuters reported that at least 18 people were killed in a high-speed bus crash in Hong Kong, in one of the city’s worst traffic disasters in recent years.

Television footage showed the mangled remains of the bus as it lay toppled on the side of a major highway, as firefighters cut open the bus roof to free passengers still trapped inside.

Police said at least 18 people, including 15 men, had been confirmed dead on the scene.

Dozens more were hurt, some sitting hunched on the highway with blood streaming from their injuries.
