MOSCOW, July 19 (Itar-Tass) — Twelve Russian tourists, who have been injured in a road traffic accident in Antalya (Turkey), have left for Moscow, spokeswoman for the Federal Agency for Tourism (Rostourism) Irina Shchegolkova told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
She referred to information from the Russian consulate general in Antalya.
“They left Turkey about 1 p.m. local time by Aeroflot and should make a landing in Moscow about 5.45 Moscow time,” the spokeswoman said.
She stressed that a woman with a broken leg had arrived in Russia.
“According to the Russian consulate general in Antalya, a bus carrying Russian tourists to the Antalya airport got into a road accident at about 06:00 a.m. near the town of Serik,” the spokeswoman said.
Eleven Russians received minor injuries and one woman broke her leg. All of them were offered emergency medical help. The accident was caused by a taxi driver who forced the bus to go off the lane.
The Russian Tourism Agency is in contact with the Russian consulate general. The agency also informs that under the current Turkish law, all people injured in traffic accidents, including foreign citizens, are offered free medical assistance regardless of whether they have insurance policies or not.
