7 die as minibus carrying factory staff plunges into Zhejiang river

SEVEN people died when a minibus plunged into a river in east China's Zhejiang Province early today, local police said.

The Ford Transit, carrying 10 people from a textile-dyeing company in Haiyan County, veered off the road and into the river at about 12:30 am, a spokesman with the Zhejiang provincial public security department said.

He said the bus was raised from the water at 3 a.m., with three people still alive. "They were all injured, none critically," he said.

The bus was either owned or hired by the dyeing company to take staff to and from work, the spokesman said.

He said the cause of the accident was not immediately known.
