NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Kenya's Red Cross says at least 41 people were killed after an early morning bus crash.

Police said more than two dozen others were injured after the bus driver lost control and the large touring bus plunged into a valley Thursday. Police officer Samuel Kimaru said the bus veered off the road around 2 a.m. and landed on its roof.

Photos from the scene showed the bus upright but with its roof sheared off.

The accident occurred near Narok, 140 kilometers (85 miles) west of Nairobi. Deadly road accidents are common in Kenya, where highways lack safety features like guard rails or reflective paint.
