At least 10 people were killed in an accident in Cuba on Friday, and 25 others were injured. International news agencies reported this weekend based on local media. Authorities provided details about what happened in Mayapek County on Saturday: The bus driver lost control of the vehicle near the village of Goynes, after which the bus veered off the road and overturned.
The bus transported the teachers from the capital, Havana, to the province of Granma, the home of its passengers. Teachers’ shelters in the capital should be used temporarily as quarantine areas for people who may have coronavirus infection. The car, which crashed about 30 miles west of Havana, was rented by the Ministry of Education.
“We regret the loss of valuable human lives. Our condolences go to family members and friends,” he wrote Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Twitter. Nine of the dead were already found dead at the scene. The French News Agency reported, based on a government press release, that three wounded were still in critical condition on Saturday evening.
