A massive avalanche slammed a bus in Himachal Pradesh's Kinnaur on Wednesday, trapping at least 40 people. The debris has buried the bus bringing passengers from Kinnaur to Haridwar, as well as a few other cars.

The Himachal Road Transport Corporation (HRTC) bus, which was carrying more than 30 people, was trapped in the debris, along with other cars. It's possible that a few automobiles have slipped off the road and into the Sutlej River below. The bus was travelling from Kinnaur's Reckong Peo to Haridwar.
