MELBOURNE: Two Chinese women died in Western Australia after their car hit a bus on Sunday (Sep 15) near a popular tourist site about 190km north of Perth, Western Australia Police said.
Their Nissan Xtrail four-wheel drive, with three people on board, collided with a bus carrying 34 passengers after they turned onto the Indian Ocean Drive from a road leading to the Pinnacles limestone site in a national park, Western Australia Police said in a statement.
"The collision caused the Nissan to roll, coming to rest on its roof. The driver of the Nissan Xtrail died at the scene," police said.
The two passengers in the car were transported to Royal Perth Hospital by helicopter.
"One passenger has since died and the other is in a critical but stable condition," police said.
The Chinese consulate in Perth has not responded to a query from Reuters.
