ANKARA, Turkey — Turkish state-run news agency said Monday an Iranian passenger bus has overturned in southeastern Turkey, killing three people on board and injuring 50 others.

The Anatolia news agency said the accident occurred Monday in Sanliurfa province, close to the Syrian border. It was not known what caused the accident. The agency says the bus was on its way to Syria from Iran.

The agency says the injured passengers were transported to nearby hospitals.

Thousands of people are killed in traffic accidents on Turkey's roads each year because of careless driving or poor road conditions.
