At least twenty five people were injured when a bus travelling from Kataragama to Ampara toppled on the Sellakataragama - Buttala Road when it tried to overtake a lorry carrying a backhoe this afternoon.

A group of devotees who were heading to Ampara after a pilgrimage to Kataragama were injured in the accident.

The injured were admitted to the Kataragama District Hospital and twelve of them were later transferred to the Debarawewa Base Hospital.

They were residents of Ampara, Uhana, Mahaoya, Mangalagama and Maligathenna. (M.K. Nandasena)

    No wonder, TATA, Layland may be enough to transport animals not humans. I can not understand why Country cannot promote Micro buses? It will at least remove 3rd world look from Colombo.
