Bus driver injured in airport route crash


A BUS driver, 49, was injured in an accident on the road between Palma and Manacor.
He was trapped in the vehicle and had to be rescued by firefighters but his injuries were not serious.
According to the accident emergency services, he was returning from the airport when instead of going round the roundabout, he went straight across it, knocking down a concrete and metal statue which was in the middle before ending up in a garden.
The driver was the sole occupant of the bus at the time. The road had to be closed to traffic for some time, mainly due to the fuel on the road. Road maintenance workers cleaned it up and the vehicle was removed by crane.
Local Police are investigating the cause of the accident.
