14 May 2014
At least 14 people were killed in a bus crash on Burma’s notorious “death highway” on Monday night, according to Agence France-Presse (AFP). The news agency said that 29 people were also injured, three of them seriously, when a bus traveling from Naypyidaw to Rangoon crashed in heavy rain. “It was pouring with rain and the driver lost control and the bus crashed into a bridge and fell onto a rail track,” AFP quoted Police Lieutenant-Colonel Min Aung saying. The poorly built concrete road that connects Burma’s biggest city with the new capital has been the scene of hundreds of deaths.
