    Seventeen people are dead after the truck they were traveling in fell into a river in Sichuan Province Wednesday. The truck was illegally carrying 19 people on board.

    The low-speed vehicle designed for agricultural use was traveling on a road in Yajiang County when the driver lost control and fell from a 360-foot-high cliff into a river below about 1:30 Wednesday afternoon.

    Of the two people rescued, one is in stable condition. The other one is suffering from severe wounds and is still under intensive medical care at a hospital in Yajiang County.

    The bodies of the 17 victims have been retrieved from the river, according to the rescuers.

    The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
