WASHINGTON (Reuters) - One Chinese tourist was killed and 15 people were injured on Tuesday when a shuttle-bus overturned on a highway in Northern Virginia, near Washington, D.C., the Washington Post reported.

A car traveling on the highway collided with the bus, which was carrying 19 Chinese tourists, the newspaper reported, citing U.S. Park Police.

The bus overturned and landed on its left side, and afterward some 20 people helped push the bus right-side up and free those who were trapped underneath, according to the Washington Post.

Park Police said that one passenger on the bus was killed, according to the newspaper and local broadcasters.


Among the 15 hospitalized were the bus driver and a passenger of the car. Three people were in critical condition, according to local media.
