A bus carrying Finnish tourists crashed in southern Spain on Saturday, leaving eight people dead, including a 7-year-old girl, police said.

The bus collided with another vehicle and overturned on the AP-7 coastal highway near the coastal resort town of Benalmadena, a police spokeswoman said.

Another 16 people were injured. All of the bus passengers were Finnish.

Police arrested the driver of the other vehicle after he failed a blood alcohol test, said the spokeswoman, who declined to give her name in line with police policy.

She said some of the injured were in serious condition in local hospitals.
