A bus has lost control and plunged into a ravine in Brazil's Sao Paulo state, killing at least 15 passengers and injuring 31, according to AFP.

The driver lost control of the bus about 120 kilometres from the country's economic capital, and crashed the vehicle into a rock in the opposite lane.

The impact caused the vehicle to overturn and fall into a ravine, rescue services said.

The passengers were mostly students, AFP reports.

The students were from three schools in the town of Mogi das Cruzes and were headed to the coastal town of Sao Sebastiao in dark and foggy conditions, according to the Globo G1 news network.

The driver was among the dead, several media outlets reported.
