by December 24, 2016 General

Fourteen people were killed when an interstate bus in Malaysia carrying passengers from Singapore and Myanmar careered off a highway.

The bus, heading from southern Johor state to the capital Kuala Lumpur, went off the road in the wet before rolling over and ending up in a deep ditch.

Emergency services said 16 people were injured.

Deadly road crashes are common in Malaysia despite efforts to crack down on poor driving, especially during festive seasons when people return to their home towns.
