12 dead in bus crash

June 5th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Travel

12 people have died after a truck hit a bus in southern Syria.

Unlike previous incidents, this was a Pullman coach which was involved. It was travelling from Damascus to Sweida near the village of Assoura.

18 people have been injured – 4 are critically ill in intensive care.

It’s thought the two vehicles were travelling too fast.

    the travel roads in syria are not secured enough for travelling.
    this Swidda road is known to be the death path due to the large amount of accident which happen on it.
    every home in Syria must have some relative – close or not close- or maybe more than one, who have been killed while travelling from one Mohafaza to another.
    yet the governemt reaction to deal with this is nothing serious.
