32 killed in Taiwan tour bus accident

At least 32 people have been killed and 12 wounded when a tour bus flipped over on a highway near Taiwan's capital, Taipei, according to officials.

New Taipei City's fire department said 17 passengers "showed no signs of life" at the scene of the crash, which occurred at about 9pm.

A number of passengers were trapped under the crushed bus, and rescuers used a crane to pry the vehicle open.

Investigators said the driver of that bus intentionally set fire to it in a suicide bid before it careered into a crash barrier.

Prior to entering the league, Moses was a nightmare for SEC offensive coordinators during his four years as a lineman for Georgia. It is also worth noting that 31-year-old Andria Goddard and her 10-year-old daughter were also killed in the aforementioned fire.

Authorities are still trying to determine the exact cause of the accident.

Local media said the passengers had been returning from a trip to a farm in central Taichung when the vehicle went off the road in eastern Taipei.

"The whole frame of the bus changed shape, got crushed and left no openings". Among the victims, 30 people died at the scene while two died in the hospital. A total of 44 people reportedly were on board the bus, and all are believed to be Taiwanese.
