Nairobi, Kenya (AP) — Police said at least 18 people were killed after a bus carrying members of the choir to a wedding plunged into a river in Kenya on Saturday.

Commander Joseph Yakan of the Mwingi Eastern Police said the driver tried to steer the bus over the flooded bridge, but strong currents swept the vehicle into the river.

Ten people were rescued, but “there are 18 now,” he said.

At the time of the accident in Kitui County, a chant member of the Mwingi Catholic Church was traveling for the wedding of a male colleague.

Authorities said the case was under investigation.
