A ski tour bus that crashed Friday in Nagano Prefecture killing 15 people on board steered an eratic course for several hundred meters before it crashed, indicating the driver may have lost control of the vehicle, transport ministry sources said.

The information was revealed after police and ministry inspectors analyzed images captured by a roadside surveillance camera installed 250 meters before the crash point. The bus was also traveling at more than 50 kph on a slope down to the site of the crash.
