Scores killed as passenger bus plunges from highway onto van


At least 21 people were killed and around 20 others hurt in Manila when a bus plunged from an elevated highway and fell onto a van. 

Several of the deceased were seen covered in newspapers at the scene of the crash, as crowds gathered nearby. 

Reports said that the majority of the fatalities were passengers of the bus because the van only had two occupants.

It isn't immediately clear what caused the accident but reports say the highway was wet from rain.
