The officer said about 18 to 20 people, including the 5 school children, were killed in the accident. He said investigators were still trying to figure out if all those killed were passengers on the bus or if some had been on the train.

The general manager of Northern Railways, Sriprakash, who goes by one name, said poor visibility caused by foggy weather was responsible for the accident.

"This is the mistake of the bus driver," he told the NDTV television station. "Apparently there was fog and visibility was low."

Accidents caused by reckless driving, aging vehicles and bad roads are common in India.
