Authorities have said that three persons were still missing, even though others who believed they were lost were found via phone. Divers were searching the lake.
However, the injured in the crash had fractured bones, and one of them was in a hospital for facial and head injuries. Another 23 patients were treated for minor injuries, he added.
The region has been undergoing severe rainfall for two weeks, which may have caused the rock to loosen.
