Twelve people were injured Friday in Gunma Prefecture when their minibus slid 20 meters down a mountain slope while the driver was outside, police said.

The bus was carrying a group of middle-aged trekkers who had come to the area to climb Mount Eboshidake. Police initially said four people had been seriously injured and 10 had sustained light injuries but later corrected the numbers to two and 10, respectively.
