CHENGDU, March 28 (Xinhua) -- Four people have been confirmed dead and another six injured after a coach overturned on an expressway section in a remote Tibetan prefecture in southwest China's Sichuan Province early Thursday morning.

The emergency response office in Tibetan-Qiang Autonomous Prefecture of Aba said the coach fully loaded with 55 people was en route from the provincial capital of Chengdu to Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, when the accident happened on No. 213 State Expressway in Banyou Township.

All of the injured have been sent to hospital. Among them, two remained in critical conditions.

Investigators said that the coach veered out of control after the driver improperly operated the vehicle and made it hit on a truck, which had rolled over on the road.
