    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - At least 11 people were killed, while 44 others were wounded as a result of a school bus crash in Turkey's central Eskisehir province on Saturday, the Anadolu news agency reported Saturday.

    The bus carrying students smashed into trees along the roadside of the Eskisehir-Bursa highway for an unknown reason, the agency reported, citing Ozdemir Cakacak, the province's governor.

    All those wounded have been transported to three different hospitals, the news outlet added.
