At least eleven people have been killed and dozens more injured, many seriously, in a bus accident in southern Haiti, a police source said on Monday.

The accident occurred after midday on the country’s Highway Two while the bus was traveling down a hill towards the town of Petit-Goave, according to police commissioner Pierre-Nonchamp Beauzile.

The vehicle had been experiencing mechanical difficulties and it appears that part of it broke off, causing it to crash in the middle of the highway, Beauzile said.

Rescue teams and ambulances rushed to the scene to help the injured, some of whom were transferred to regional hospitals and others to facilities in the capital Port-au-Prince.
