At least 7 dead in Cuba bus crash

На Кубе на мокрой дороге перевернулся автобус погибли 7 человек

Two Canadians are reportedly injured after a fatal bus crash in eastern Cuba on Thursday afternoon.

According to state media, the bus was carrying 18 Cubans and 22 tourists, including some from Canada.

The accident occurred on the winding mountain road linking Baracoa to Guantanamo when the driver tried to overtake another vehicle on a slippery road, according to the reports.

The names and nationalities of those killed haven't yet been released. Five people were also left in critical condition from the crash.

The UK Foreign Office said it was "seeking information from the Cuban authorities" and that it was "ready to assist any British people who require our help", a spokesperson told the BBC.

The incident was the fourth major bus accident in a month in Cuba, which has narrow, poorly lit, pothole-littered roads.

Last year, there were 750 deaths and 7,999 injuries from 11,187 accidents on the country's roads.

"Cuban authorities have confirmed that no Canadians are among those who died in this bus crash".

"We are now providing assistance to two British nationals who were injured on the bus".

The dead ranged in age from 32 to 67, according to a tweet by Radio Guantánamo, which identified the injured USA citizen as Allison Alida Kemmer.
