A police offer says 10 people have been killed and two injured after a bus skidded off a highway and crashed in northern Malaysia.

The bus spun out of control early Saturday in northern Perak state and slammed into a metal barrier that tore through the lower tier of the double-decker vehicle.

A police officer, speaking on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to talk to the press, says the cause of the accident was not immediately known.

The bus was heading from central Selangor state to the northernmost state of Perlis bordering Thailand.

Malaysia has a high-quality highway system with a speed limit of 70 miles (110 kilometers) per hour. But speeding is common and many drivers often do not follow safety procedures.
