A bus carrying a wedding party plunged into a gorge in mountainous northern India, killing at least 18 people and injuring another 27, a government official said Tuesday. The bus rolled down a 180 meters deep gorge and fell into the fast flowing Mandakini River late Monday night, said Amit Chandola, a spokesman for the government of Uttarakhand state. "Initial inquiry suggests that the driver, along with many other members of the marriage party, was in an inebriated state," he added. The bus, which had a seating capacity of 32, was packed with 44 passengers and the state government has ordered a detailed inquiry into the accident, Chandola said.
