A Hong Kong man died and two Indians and a Canadian were among 11 people injured when their bus crashed into the back of a truck en route from the Chinese mainland to Hong Kong.

The bus, with 43 passengers aboard collided with a truck at 9:13 a.m. on Monday at the Houjie section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen expressway in Dongguan City, Guangdong Province, Dongguan traffic police said.

The bus ran out of control after the collision, crashing into a roadside ditch and overturning.

The driver, a 50-year-old Hong Kong man, was seriously injured and declared dead by doctors on Monday afternoon. Eleven people, including another Hong Kong person, suffered slight or minor injuries. They were receiving medical attention in three hospitals in Dongguan.

Police are still investigating the cause of the accident. The expressway was closed after the accident, but re-opened two hours later.
