Bus Accident Leaves 18 Injured in El Salvador

SAN SALVADOR At least 18 people were injured when an inter-city bus flipped over on a highway in El Salvador when the driver became distracted, the highway patrol said.

The accident occurred Saturday on the highway that links San Salvador and the eastern city of Usulutan.

Passengers said in statements to investigators that the driver lost control of the bus while talking on his cell phone, a highway patrol spokesman said.

The bus flipped on its side and went off the road, the highway patrol spokesman said, adding that the injured passengers were taken to a nearby hospital.

The driver has not been identified and investigators are trying to determine whether he fled from the accident scene or is among the injured, the highway patrol spokesman said.

Inter-city buses usually carry about 50 people, but it is not known how many passengers were aboard the bus involved in the accident, the highway patrol spokesman said.
