Police official Bharat Bohara says the driver lost control and the van rolled about 100 meters (330 feet) down Tuesday morning.

He says the injured have been taken to hospital. Two of them are in critical condition. The area is about 480 kilometers (300 miles) northwest of the capital, Katmandu.

Few other details are available. Most of Nepal is covered by mountains where roads are generally poorly maintained as are vehicles plying on them.
