KUALA LUMPUR: A total of 14 people including a driver were injured when their tour bus rammed into a road barrier and flipped just after the Genting Sempah tunnel along the Karak highway this afternoon.

The bus driver is believed to have lost control of the KL-bound vehicle and hit the expressway barrier before the bus turned sideways.
