A bus in Thailand's north-east has plunged off a high bridge, killing 29 on board, police said.

The bus crashed off a bridge in Khun Pha Muang, BBC reported. 

There were reportedly between 33 and 40 people on board. 

North-east Thailand is part of Thailand which is not frequented by tourists. No foreigners were believed to have been on board, AFP reported. 

Police told AFP they believed the driver fell asleep.
