Spanish bus careens off road, kills nine

A bus carrying more than 30 passengers careened off a highway in central Spain and ploughed into a metal safety barrier on Monday, killing nine people in an impact that blew out windows and tore away one side of the vehicle. The 54-year-old bus driver was detained by police after the accident, which also injured 22 people, six seriously, police and emergency services said. The crash near Avila, northwest of Madrid, was Spain's deadliest in five years.
