India registers more than 150,000 road deaths each year due to poorly maintained vehicles and reckless driving.

A private bus, carrying a wedding party fell into a river in the western Indian state of Rajasthan, killing 24 passengers, police said.

The driver lost control while a 28-passenger bus crossed the bridge, AFP reported.

Villagers and rescuers are trying to get the bodies out of the river.

Last month, 26 people died when a bus collided with a rickshaw in western India.
