A tourist bus crash in South Korea has killed 17 people and injured 14 others.

Police officer Park Sang-ho said the bus was carrying 31 people when it veered off a mountainous road and rolled about 20 meters down a hill in Gyeongju, about 280 kilometres southeast of Seoul, yesterday evening.

The crash left 17 people dead and the 14 others injured seriously. All those on board were Koreans in their 70s and 80s.

Park said the exact cause is under investigation.
