Twenty-four people were killed Monday and seven others injured when a bus crashed through a guardrail and plunged 30 meters (100 feet) off an overpass in southwestern China, state media reported.
Xinhua News Agency said slippery roads may have caused the bus driver to lose control.
It said five of the injured were in critical condition in a Chongqing hospital, and that police were still trying to determine the number of passengers on the bus.
China's roads are among the world's most dangerous, with thousands of people dying each year in accidents caused by reckless driving, poor road conditions and overloading of vehicles.
Last October, a bus drove off an on-ramp of a Chongqing bridge, killing 30 people and injuring 20.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
It has long been understood that the West has been trying to subject Russian borders to total control. We have not seen such activity even during the Cold War
