At least 18 people were killed and 62 injured on Saturday after a double-decker bus overturned in China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

 
Authorities said 10 of the injured were in critical condition and 15 were seriously wounded.
 
Most of the injured and bodies of the deceased were found on the upper deck of the bus, and the deceased mostly died of trauma to the head.
 
Police said the driver was arrested, and so far there is no sign of fatigue driving when the accident occurred.
 
Most of the passengers were horse racing fans, as the bus was travelling on a special route for horse racing days.

Rescuers cut open the top of the bus to save the passengers trapped inside.
