A bus carrying passengers tipped over and went flying into a stream in Turkey's eastern Muş province on Friday, leaving six killed and 29 injured.

The accident occurred on the Muş-Bingöl highway after the driver lost control of the bus due to heavy snowfall, and veered off the highway, plunging into the frozen stream.

The bus was carrying passengers from southern Hatay province to Muş.

The wounded were taken to nearby hospitals in Muş and Solhan.

Turkey's eastern and southeastern regions have been grappling with freezing temperatures and heavy snow.
