A tour bus transporting 28 Chinese tourists overturned on the Island of Koh Samui in Surat Thani Province on Sunday night, injuring 10 of the 28 passengers.

bus-crash-samuiBo Phut  Police reported that the driver of the bus lost control as the vehicle negotiated a curve, causing the bus to topple over on its side.

10 of the tourists were slightly injured, the driver, tour guide and the remaining 18 passengers were unharmed.

Six of the injured tourists were sent to Bangkok Hospital Samui and four others were taken to Thai International Hospital Samui.

Bo Phut police are investigating the cause of the accident, saying charges could be pending if reckless driving attributed to the accident.

On November 24th, sixteen pensioners were injured, eight of them seriously, after a bus driver fell asleep at the wheel, causing the bus to swerve, crash in Ayutthaya.

Buses are supposed to be safe, but here in Thailand the safety regulations, when they exist, are hardly ever enforced. Accidents are bound to happen when the buses are poorly maintained and driven too fast by exhausted drivers.
