Diyarbakir, Turkey, Dec 22: A passenger bus collided with a truck on a single lane road in southeast Turkey on Wednesday, killing 25 people, an official said.

The governor of Diyarbakir province said 16 other passengers were injured in the accident on a road linking Diyarbakir with the neighbouring Batman province.

He said some of the injured were in serious condition.

The mid-sized coach collided head-on with the truck, which was carrying bricks, said the mayor of the small town of Yukari Salat near the site of the crash.

The road was reduced to a single lane due to roadwork at the time of the crash, which probably helped cause the accident, he said.

The road was scattered with bricks and the bus's front-end appeared cut open from the impact of the crash.
