Another bus tragedy has claimed the lives of more innocent people in Syria.
12 people have died after a bus and truck heading for Iraq collided in north-eastern Syria. Both vehicles were destroyed in the accident. It’s thought high speed and fog were to blame. One of the drivers was on the wrong side of the road (probably overtaking) when the head-on collision occurred.
It is time that main roads like these had crash barriers dividing up the two directions of travel – to prevent drivers using the wrong side of the road for overtaking.
The tragedy comes just three days after three people died when an Iranian bus exploded in Damascus, the accident/atrocity* was caused by a tyre/bomb/lack of free-and-fair elections/other* (*delete according to your political opinions).
