Eleven people died and 39 others were injured in the southern Mersin province of Türkiye yesterday when an intercity bus collided with three other vehicles on a main highway, Turkish Interior Minister Ali Yerlikaya said.

An intercity passenger bus, a truck and cars were involved in a chain accident. The bus, travelling to Istanbul from Diyarbakir, reportedly slipped in the rainy weather, overturned, and crossed into the opposite lane, causing a chain accident involving two cars and a pickup truck.

Police, gendarmerie, medical, and fire brigade teams were sent to the scene of the accident. An investigation had been launched.
