Driver, 2 Students Killed in Cyprus School Bus Crash On Turkish Side

November 29, 2016

NICOSIA, Cyprus — Turkish Cypriot broadcaster BRT says two female high school students and the driver of their school bus were killed when the vehicle collided head-on with a truck along a mountain road.

BRT said the early morning crash on Nov. 29 also left seven other passengers injured, three of them seriously.

Faiz Sucuoglu, Health Minister of ethnically divided Cyprus’ breakaway Turkish Cypriot north, said one passenger is in critical condition after undergoing emergency surgery while another is suffering from a brain hemorrhage.

The accident happened as the bus was taking the students from their village on the Pentadaktylos mountain range to school in the northern, Turkish Cypriot half of the island’s capital, Nicosia.
