More than a dozen students killed in Spain bus crash

MADRID - A bus carrying university students back from a fireworks festival crashed Sunday on a main highway in northeastern Spain, killing 14 passengers and injuring 30 others, a Catalonian official said.

The bus, which was carrying more than 50 passengers, appeared to have hit the right-hand side barriers of the AP7 highway before cartwheeling across the road and slamming into the central fence, landing on its side, said Jordi Jane, spokesman for Spain's northeastern Catalonia province.
