DHAKA: A police official says a passenger van drove off a mountain road in northwestern Nepal killing at least 10 people and injuring another six.
Police official Bharat Bohara says the driver lost control and the van rolled about 100 meters down Tuesday morning, reports The Jakarta Post.
He says the injured have been taken to hospital. Two of them are in critical condition. The area is about 480 kilometers northwest of the capital, Katmandu.
Few other details are available.
Most of Nepal is covered by mountains where roads are generally poorly maintained as are vehicles plying on them.
