Three dead in Caribe Tours crash
Around 35 people were injured and three died when a Caribe Tours bus plunged into a ditch near El Pino yesterday, Monday 19 October 2015.
The victims were taken to the Juan Bosch Trauma Hospital where 12 are said to be in a serious condition, including the driver, Yariel Acosta.
According to a spokesman for the emergency services, the bus fell into a drainage ditch on the side of the Duarte Highway near the entrance to the road to San Francisco de Macoris. Early reports suggest that the steering failed and the driver lost control, hitting several roadside shacks before falling into the ditch.
The bus had begun its journey in Dajabon, with a stop in Santiago, and was on its way to Santo Domingo carrying around 70 passengers.
