MOSCOW, August 9 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Tourism Agency reported on Friday that twenty-six Russian tourists had been hurt in a bus accident in Thailand.
“Three of them are in serious condition,” the agency’s spokeswoman Irina Shchegolkova told Itar-Tass. She added that more information on the accident was expected from the Russian consulate in Thailand.
“We are going to contact tour operators to find out what tourist company had sent these tourists to Thailand,” Shchegolkova said in conclusion.
For her part, Maya Lomidze, the executive director of the Association of Russian Tour Operators, said that the Russians might have gone on a street tour, which had not been organised by tour operators. “Some tourists who were on the bus could have bought that excursion on their own,” Lomidze went on to say.
According to local police, the tourist bus driver lost control of the vehicle, pulled into the roadside and turned over. Twenty-six Russians were hurt in the accident. All of them, including three in serious condition, were taken to hospital in the Chonburi province.
