QUANG NAM (VNS) — Ten people were injured when a bus suddenly fell into an abyss yesterday morning in Dai Quang Commune, in the central province of Quang Nam's Dai Loc District.

The bus, carrying 37 passengers and being driven by Pham Quang Dung, a resident of the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak, was on its way from Dak Lak to the central Hue city, a source from Quang Nam Province's transport police said.

When the bus reached My An Village, it suddenly turned right and rolled down the hill. Luckily, the bus got stuck on the edge of the hill, saving the lives of all passengers and the driver.

Dai Loc District police and local office workers immediately reached the accident site and carried out rescue work. At least 10 passengers were injured and sent to a local general hospital.

Six of the injured persons were discharged from hospital yesterday afternoon, three were still being treated and one seriously injured passenger was shifted to Da Nang City's hospital.

All the rest of passengers were transferred to another bus and sent to their home village.

Initial investigation showed that the speeding bus had come close to a truck, travelling on the same way, which broke down suddenly.

The cause of the accident is being investigated. — VNS
