At least 21 people have died, and 15 others were injured on Tuesday when a bus crashed into a reservoir in the Anshun city district of China's southwestern Guizhou province, according to The Mirror.

The Ministry of public security of the people's Republic of China has already sent a special Commission to the area of emergency to investigate the causes of the incident.

Earlier, China Central Television reported that a vehicle carrying schoolchildren on the day of the unified state exam for admission to universities crashed into a bump and fell into a reservoir. No information was received about possible victims. Doctors, rescue workers, and divers are working at the scene of the accident.

As a rule, graduates of Chinese schools take a single exam from June 6 to 8, but this year, due to the pandemic of the disease caused by the coronavirus, the exam was postponed to July 7-8.
