Capri: Bus plunges off road and crashes onto beach

One dead and more than a dozen injured in Capri bus crash.

A minibus crashed into a beach resort on the Italian island of Capri, after plunging about six metres from the road above, according to local media reports.

There was one person killed and more than a dozen injured in the incident which occurred at 11.30 this morning, reports Il Mattino, with several people believed to be in a serious condition.

The bus veered off the road after a guard rail gave way as the vehicle was making a turn near the Belvedere e Tre Re hotel.

The minibus was reportedly "more crowded than usual," due to a breakdown on the island's funicular railway line this morning.

The vehicle overturned and remained wedged between a wall and cabins at the Marina Grande beach, according to reports.

Emergency services are at the scene, with an air ambulance sent from Naples.
