27 passengers injured in bus accident in Vanni

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 23 February 2010, 02:37 GMT]
A public transport bus carrying mostly government employees and teachers fell into the roadside canal Monday early morning while trying to avoid colliding with a Sri Lanka Army (SLA) vehicle in Kunchchup Paranthan in Vanni, sources in Jaffna said. Eleven of the injured are admitted to Jaffna Teaching Hospital where three of them are in a critical condition, hospital sources said. Rest of the injured are admitted to Ki’linochchi government hospital.

There is only one bus service taking government employees and teachers from Jaffna to Muzhangkaavil daily and it was this bus which fell into the canal.

There was difficulty in taking the injured passengers to the hospital due to very limited transport service along this road, the sources added.
