Authorities in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh say at least 11 people were killed Sunday afternoon when a bus packed with passengers veered off a road and plunged into a canal.

The authorities say the accident happened in the Bulandshahr district after the driver lost control of the vehicle. They say 11 bodies have been recovered by rescue workers, but cautioned the death toll could rise.

The rescue operation continued into the night.
