A crowded bus rolled three times and burst into flames on an unpaved road in remote northeast Kenya, killing 17 people and injuring more than a dozen, authorities said. The accident happened Saturday night outside Garissa, 300 kilometers (185 miles) northeast of the capital, Nairobi. Police used an earth mover to flip the bus and rescue trapped passengers. Police said 17 people died and hospital officials said 16 patients from the crash were admitted with fractures and burns. Police said the bus had too many passengers, but no further details were available.
