Deadly bus crash in Damascus

A bus has crashed on the South Bypass Road in Damascus - two people have died.
 
Another eight are injured - three seriously.
 
It happened yesterday, during the rain storm. Unusually, the bad weather - and not excessive speed - is being blamed.
 
The forty seater vehicle careered off a bridge on the Mahlaq Jnoobi - the southern bypass road. The crash happened near to the scene of last month's deadly car bomb.

what i''ve heard, and read, from the media there were actually three people dead and it was a 24 passenger bus..
it's amazing how many different stories u can find about a single incident!
