Nearly two dozen passengers were injured after a bus plunged into a 12-feet-deep ditch near the Jamalnagar Bhains village in Agra, police said.

The injured passengers were taken to the SN Medical College for treatment and all of them were out of danger, said the police.

Meanwhile, angered at the delay in reaching of ambulances at the accident spot, some local residents turned a police vehicle upside down.

SP (west) Satyajeet Gupta said that around 80 passengers were travelling in the bus and the driver and conductor fled from the spot after the accident.
