Noida: Twelve people, most of them employees
of a call centre, were injured when a bus fell off the Delhi-
Noida-Delhi (DND) flyover here this evening, police said.

The incident took place 200 metres ahead of the toll
plaza on the DND flyover at around 7 pm, Superintendent of
Police (Noida City) Amitabh Yash told PTI.
"There were 16 passengers in the bus. Twelve people
suffered injuries. The driver has got some serious injuries,"
Yash said. One of the injured is a woman.

The bus was ferrying staff of a Noida BPO.

Yash said the bus rolled down the flyover and fell after
breaking the railing but did not turn turtle.
"Fortunately, it did not turn turtle. Otherwise, it would
have been tragic," he said.

Eleven persons were rushed to AIIMS Trauma Centre in the
national capital while others were taken to nearby hospitals.
