At least 20 people were killed and 15 injured in a bus accident in Nayarit in western Mexico, officials said on Sunday.

The bus went off the road and fell down a 120-meter cliff on Saturday after the driver lost control, said a spokesman of Mexico's public security ministry.

The driver was suspected to have fallen asleep when the accident happened, initial reports said.

Nayarit is about 800 km northwest of Mexico City.
