an News Agency): Twenty-one people were killed after a passenger bus crashed due to intense fog and ice in the Central Anatolian province of Kayseri early on Jan. 23, in one of Turkey’s deadliest road accidents of recent years.
Twenty-two other people are reported injured, including several who are in a critical condition. Owned by a company located in the eastern province of Muş, the bus was an overnight service that had departed from Istanbul for Muş.
The accident occurred at around 2:30 a.m. near Kayseri, where the bus lost control due to icing and crashed into the median strip. The bus tumbled over several times before falling into a ditch on the opposite side of the road.
The injured passengers were immediately rushed to hospitals in Kayseri.
Overnight bus journeys are a feature of life in Turkey, as many bus companies choose to operate at night and thus avoid traffic.
