Bus falls from bridge in U.S., at least 6 dead

At least six people have been killed in a crash in the Southern U.S. state of Georgia, when a charter bus toppled from a bridge. It was carrying a college baseball team from Bluffton University in Ohio.

The bus plunged from a highway ramp early on Friday onto a major road below, Interstate 75.

Rescue teams have been forced to pull trapped passengers through the roof, as the bus landed on its side.

Several of the 35 passengers were also injured and the exact cause of the crash remains unclear.

The baseball team was scheduled to play in Fort Myers, Florida, this weekend.
