Bus carrying kids and women to a mother's day event tips over killing at least 23 people in Turkey

Turkish authorities say at least 23 people have died and 11 others are in critical condition after a tour bus tipped over, fell 50 feet down a cliff and then hit a car on a serpentine mountain road. Deputy governor of Mugla province, Kamil Koten, told Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency that the driver is among the dead and most of those killed were women.
The governor said the bus flipped over at a road bend as it was traveling from the coastal province of Izmir to Marmaris, a popular tourist destination.

He also confirmed that the passengers were all Turkish and the cause of the accident is unclear, pending investigation. The bus was in a convoy of six, carrying mostly women and children for a Mother's Day event.
