Vijayawada: At least seven passengers were killed and over 30 injured when a Visakhapatnam-bound bus fell into a canal in Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh in the wee hours on Tuesday.

Police said the toll might go up as the front portion of the bus was badly mangled and many were trapped inside.

The private Volvo bus coming from Hyderabad lost control, hit a road divider and fell into the canal between two bridges.

The driver of the bus was said to be in a drowsy condition and thus lost control.

Deputy Chief Minister (Home) N China Rajappa has directed the Krishna district police to carry out rescue operations on a war-footing.

The injured passengers were rushed to hospitals in Vijayawada for treatment.
