China road accident kills 18
At least 18 people were and two more were injured as a passenger bus plunged into a lake in the central province of Hubei, Chinese authorities said.

The provincial government said on an official website that two people survived the accident early Friday morning near the city of Ezhou and the bus driver has been placed under investigation.

Much of central China has been enveloped in thick fog for the past few days, although reports didn't say if weather was considered a factor in the accident. 

Aggressive driving, exhausted drivers and poorly maintained vehicles are also frequently cited as causes of such crashes in China, although the authorities have begun to crack down in recent years, according to a news agency report.
