Police say an overcrowded, speeding bus has crashed into a stationary truck in northeastern India, killing 23 people and wounding 44 others.

The bus was carrying laborers to work before dawn Tuesday in the Dhubri district of India's Assam state, some 185 miles west of the state capital, Gauhati.

Dhubri police chief Parthasarathi Mahanta says the bus was carrying 67 passengers when it hit the truck, which was hauling potatoes.

Deadly road accidents are common in India, often caused by aging vehicles, overloading and reckless driving.
