A tourist bus car­ry­ing 18 peo­ple rolled over in south­ern Tai­wan’s Ping­tung County yesterday, leav­ing a 58-year-old Chi­nese woman dead and 15 other in­jured, the Tourism Bureau said.

A to­tal of 16 Chi­nese, a Tai­wanese tour guide and a Tai­wanese bus driver were on the bus when the ac­ci­dent took place at around 3 p.m., ac­cord­ing to Chieh Li Travel Ser­vice Co., which is host­ing the tour group from the coastal province of Fu­jian in south­east­ern China.

Ex­cept for two Chi­nese tourists, all other peo­ple on­board were in­jured, both the bureau and the po­lice con­firmed.

It ap­peared that the ac­ci­dent oc­curred when the driver was try­ing to dodge some­thing quickly in pour­ing rain, the com­pany said.
