British tourists feared dead after seven killed in Cuba bus crash near Guantanamo | Daily Star

Seven people, including four foreign tourists, were killed and 33 others injured in a bus accident that occurred in eastern Cuba, local media reported on Friday.

The names and nationalities of those killed have not been released.

Two British tourists were injured while onboard with local travellers and visitors from the Netherlands, France, Mexico and Canada.

The bus was travelling from Baracoa to the capital, Havana, when it crashed near Guantánamo on Thursday. Witnesses said he tried to overtake another vehicle.

Five crash victims are still said to be in critical condition as medical staff in the country battle to save their lives.




In addition to the dead, three Cubans and two foreigners - 42-year-old Spaniard Felicita Hurtado and French woman Marline Alphonse, 63 - were said to be in a serious condition.

According to the driver, he lost control due to wet road surfaces.

On top of the road being wet and winding, Cuba's highways are also known for being poorly lit, too narrow, and riddled with potholes. Past year in all of Cuba there were over 11,000 auto accidents on their poorly-conditioned highways. This most recent crash is the fourth bus crash there this month.

Traffic accidents are common in Cuba and have resulted in some 4,400 deaths since 2012, according to official data.
