Tragedy as New Zealand bus crash leaves five tourists killed after vehicle rolls over near Rotorua

Five Chinese tourists have died and six others have been injured in a bus crash near a popular tourist resort on New Zealand's North Island.


Police said 27 people were on board the vehicle when it rolled over on State Highway 5, about 20 minutes north of Rotorua, at around 11am local time on Wednesday.
Inspector Brent Crowe told a news conference the bus was travelling south towards the town, which is known for its geothermal activity including geysers and mud pools, as well as its Maori culture, when it lost control at a bend.
As a result it went on to the wrong side of the road, corrected and subsequently flipped on to its side.
No other vehicles were involved and the driver was not seriously injured.
Mr Crowe said the cause of the "tragic incident" was being investigated, with police looking into whether the bus was fitted with seat belts and if those on board were wearing them.
He said the road was reasonably hilly, had several bends and the weather was "unfavourable", with high winds, rain and fog.
