Police in Nepal say a bus drove off a rural highway in the nation's mountainous west, killing at least 10 people and injuring 25 others.

Police official Bhpendra Khanal says the bus was heading to the capital, Katmandu, on Sunday morning when it veered off the mountain road near Hardi village. The village is 200 kilometers (125 miles) west of Katmandu.

The 25 injured people were taken to various hospitals in the area for treatment. Police are investigating the cause of the accident.

Road accidents in Nepal are common and are blamed mainly on poorly maintained roads and vehicles.
