New Delhi - At least 32 people were killed on Saturday after a passenger bus veered off a bridge and plunged into a river in the western Indian state of Rajasthan, police said.

Another 10 passengers were injured in the crash in the Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan state, 375 km south of New Delhi, said government official KL Katara.

The bus reportedly broke through the bridge wall. It's not immediately clear what caused the driver to lose control of the bus.

A rescue operation is underway.

Driver fatigue, negligence, poor quality roads and vehicle maintenance are the usual causes of such accidents in India.
