A man from Taiwan was among the dead in a road accident in Guangyuan City, southwest China's Sichuan Province, confirmed local authorities Thursday.

His name was read as Yang Hsien-tung. He was from Chiayi county, Taiwan, said Jia Chaocheng, director of the Taiwan Affairs Office of Jiange county, where the accident occurred Wednesday.

A locally registered truck and a bus collided head-on around 7:30 a.m. yesterday on a highway in the Pu'an township of Jiange. The bus overturned and plunged off a 4-meter-high cliff.

Nine people were killed, said a Sichuan provincial work safety bureau official. Eight of the victims, including the bus driver, were all locals.

Twenty-three others were injured. Four are in life-threatening conditions, while another seven are in serious conditions, said an official with the county's publicity office.

Police are investigating the cause of the accident.
