article imageVideo: Bus rolls off cliff in Taiwan, 15 people injured

By Anne Sewell     May 9, 2012 in World
A bus carrying tourists from South Korea was visiting Taiwan's Taroko National Park in Hualian county when the accident occurred.
The video, filmed from another vehicle, shows the bus veer off the highway and roll off a cliff in the Taroko National Park in Eastern Taiwan on Wednesday. The bus was apparently crossing the Chinwen Bridge in the park when it overturned at 1:48 p.m.
The tour bus then rolled onto its side, but luckily did not fall down to the river below.
Apparently the cause of the accident was engine failure while navigating the steep mountainous road.
All 13 South Korean tourists, along with the driver and a tour guide from Hana Tour Service Inc. were sent to a local hospital in Hualian City for treatment. Local media says that 2 have serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
