Overloaded bus falls into Philippines ravine
Tuesday 15 May 2012
Eleven people were killed and 10 injured when an overloaded bus plunged into a 150-metre-deep ravine. The vehicle went out of control while negotiating a rough patch of a mountain road in the northern Philippines on Sunday, said the provincial police chief, William Bequeno.
The modified Jeep, known as a jeepney and the most popular mode of public transport in the Philippines, was carrying nearly 30 passengers, with many riding on the roof. It was not clear whether the driver survived.
Many accidents in the country are blamed on poorly maintained vehicles and roads, inadequate driver training and weak traffic law enforcement.
