Four Thai tourists were killed and about 40 others injured on Sunday night when their tour bus plunged into roadside bushes after the vehicle’s brakes failed and the driver lost control. The bus, carrying mostly elderly tourists from Buri Ram province, was descending from Hin Pa Ngarm Park in Tambon Puan Phu, Nong Hin district of the north-eastern province of Loei.
