In-depth investigation into bus crash

An in-depth investigation into Wednesday's bus crash has been undertaken by the Department of Public Transportation and the Bermuda Police Service.

The collision at the bottom of Spurling Hill, outside of Great Things, resulted in eight people being taken to hospital for minor injuries.

Director of the Department of Public Transportation, Mr. Dan Simmons, revealed that considerable work still needed to be done to determine the cause of the crash.

“It is early in the investigation and there is still much work that needs to be done before any final determination can be made,” he added.

“Collisions, such as this one, are a very rare occurrence and it is important that we do our due diligence and gather as much information as possible to assist in determining the probable cause.”

The DPT is requesting that any person who may have witnessed the collision to please contact the DPT for information purposes. You can call the Operations Manager on 292-3851.
