24 school students injured in UP road accident, four critical
Agra: Some two dozen school children were injured on Friday when their bus overturned and hit a divider on the Yamuna Expressway in Uttar Pradesh. Four of the students were said to be in critical condition.
The students belonged to Classes 6 to 8 of Alok Bharti School of Mandi in Himachal Pradesh. They were on an excursion tour to the Taj city of Agra when the accident took place.
A police officer said that the driver lost control of the bus after a tyre burst. "Since the bus was at a high speed, it overturned," he said.
The seriously injured have been admitted to the SN Medical College in Agra. The others were given first aid.
Some of the teachers accompanying the students were also injured.
