At least 37 people were injured when a CTB bus, another bus transporting garment factory workers and a lorry collided at the Mahagalkadawala Junction on the Anuradhapura-Padeniya Road this morning, Police said.

The lorry had crashed onto the back of the bus that was transporting garment factory workers, which went out of control and collided with the CTB bus that was coming from the opposite direction.

They said the injured were admitted to the Galgamuwa Hospital and six of them were later transferred to the Anuradhapura and Kurunegala Hospitals.

The drivers of the lorry and the bus transporting garment factory workers were arrested.
