Bus accident leaves at least 8 dead and dozens injured in western Turkey

ISTANBUL– A passenger bus crashed into a road and overturned in western Turkey on Sunday, killing at least eight people and injuring dozens.

The governor’s office of Afyonkarahisar province said the bus was traveling from the southeastern province of Diyarbakir to the Aegean city of Bodrum.

Health Minister Fahrettin Koca tweeted that 42 people had been injured, three of them in critical condition.

Videos from the scene showed ambulances lined up and a crane holding up the bus.

An injured passenger with a broken arm told state-run Anadolu news agency he was half asleep when the bus “flew”. He said people were stuck under the bus.

The bus was operated by a company called Star Has Diyarbakir.
