At least 51 people have been killed in Zambia after a bus crashed into a truck north of the capital of Lusaka.

Police said the crash involved a bus run by Zambia's postal service, which provides passenger service on buses that also carry the country's mail.

Officers are still investigating the crash at the town of Chifamba. Bodies may still be inside the wreckage.

The crash happened on a two-lane highway known for being busy, even during the night.
