Iran Offers Condolences to Hong Kong on Bus Crash

Hong Kong 18 killed 62 injured after bus overturns

The driver of a double-decker bus that overturned in Hong Kong killing at least 19 people and injuring more than 60 was arrested on Saturday evening for risky driving, police said.

The site of the accident has been cordoned off, while an investigation is underway.

Footage and images from the scene show the Kowloon Motor Bus Co. vehicle lying on its side while emergency workers rushed to treat injured passengers nearby. The top of the bus appeared to have been torn off, local media reported.

The driver of the bus was arrested on Saturday evening for risky driving. It was really chaotic in the bus.

Multiple passengers interviewed by the TVB and Cable TV news channels said the bus was speeding.

Some of the injured told Apple Daily that the driver had been 10 minutes late and began driving faster after passengers complained.

Hong Kong's double-decker buses can accommodate around 140 seated and standing passengers, depending upon the model. He also called on the government to address the issue of many drivers working overly long hours. 66 injured people were sent to hospitals for treatment, and one man died afterwards.

KMB expressed regret over the fatal accident.

And last September, a Hong Kong bus driver who had worked 13-hour shifts for several days in a row crashed, killing three.

Fourteen people were injured last April when a double-decker tram tipped over, with a 23-year-old driver later arrested for unsafe driving causing harm to others.

In a statement on Sunday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi offered condolences to the governments and nations of China and the Hong Kong SAR, as well as the families of victims of the deadly bus crash.
