ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey’s state-run news agency says a tour bus carrying tourists from Poland, Russia and Norway veered off a road near the Mediterranean coast and rolled over, injuring at least 25 people.

Anadolu Agency said the accident occurred Tuesday near the popular holiday resort of Kemer, in Antalya province.

The injured passengers were taken to hospitals in Kemer and in the nearby town of Kumluca, the report said.
