Twenty two people were injured on Thursday morning, May 29, when a public bus taking passengers from Pyrgos to Patras overturned on the Patras Perimeter Road, near Omvria exit.
The driver lost control of the vehicle and the bus ran off the street, falling into a side road. Police officers are trying to identify why the driver lost control of the bus. A flat tire is among possible causes of the accident.
Greek police announced people had been trapped inside the crashed bus. Emergency services rushed to the scene and helped the passengers get out. Four suffered minor injuries and were transferred to Agios Andreas Hospital. Later, however, 18 more passengers were hospitalized at their own request.
None of the passengers’ lives are in danger and all are expected to recover soon from minor injuries.
