Bus Crash Kills 38 in Northern Haiti

PORT-AU-PRINCE At least 38 people were killed and dozens of others injured Sunday when a bus went out of control and hit a band of street musicians in northern Haiti, the National Ambulance Service said.

At least 14 people were taken to nearby hospitals in serious condition after the driver of a bus lost control and plowed into the crowd listening to a musical band in the northern city of Gonaives.

Authorities said that the bus veered into the street musicians, who regularly staged cultural and religious musical performances before the Holy Week celebration.

After the incident, reportedly upon seeing the driver attempting to flee the scene, local residents tried to set the vehicle on fire with the passengers still inside, but police prevented them from doing so, according to information coming from the Gonaives Civil Protection authorities.

The bus, the driver and several passengers are currently under the protection of Gonaives authorities.

Gonaives is located about 150 km (90 miles) north of Port-au-Prince.
