Bus Accident in Greece Kills 21 People
Associated Press

ATHENS, Greece - A bus carrying high school students crashed on a mountain road in northern Greece Sunday, killing 21 people and injuring at least 23 others, police said.

The bus went out of control after hitting a load of plywood that fell off a truck, police said.

Some of the injured were reported in serious condition. The bus was carrying 49 students and two teachers.

The students were returning to the northern Greek town of Makrohori after a field trip to Athens when the accident occurred along a main highway linking Athens with Thessaloniki.

No further details were available.

Sadly, this probably means one person not thoroughly completing his/her task of cargo fastening ('hitting a load of plywood that fell off a truck') resulting in a death of a few dozen of others :sad:

that's the pic of the coach. as you can see the load of plywood destroyed the left side of the coach. so i suppose that all the students that were sitting on the left side of the coach died :sad:


...still i don't think that someone is gonna pay for this:(
