At least 14 people were killed and 38 others injured when a bus collided with a truck early Wednesday on a busy highway in Cameroon’s West region. 

Local police said that the collision, which resulted in a fireball that partly burned both vehicles, occurred at about 3:30 am local time on a steep road near the town of Dschang. 

“Fourteen corpses have already been removed from the debris. We are still in search of more bodies,” police officer Jones Nanda told Xinhua on phone.

Those injured have been taken to a nearby hospital, according to officials.
