This morning just after 9am, Friday 3 May 2013, there was a road accident on the main motorway to Port Louis. A bus from the express CNT Blue Line coming from Vacoas to Port Louis and transporting +40 passengers rolled over several times.
Apparently, the brakes had failed and the bus picked-up speed with the driver trying to avoid other vehicles before loosing control. The crushed bus came to halt upside-down with driver and passengers trapped inside.
At writing of this text there were 10 dead and 40 injured taken to three major hospitals. This terrible accident comes just after the tragedy suffered in Mauritius due to flash-floods on 30th March 2013.
