MOSCOW, September 15 (Itar-Tass) - A Russian tourist who was hurt in a tourist bus crash in Turkey will stay at a local hospital for about three days, a spokesman for the Association of Russian Travel Operators, told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
The accident took place on Saturday when the tourist bus owned by Pegas Touristik travel company was on its way from Marmaris to Dalyan along a winding road. According to passengers, the diver fell asleep and lost control of the vehicle. The bus went onto the ongoing lane, then hit a tree and overturned. No one was serious hurt, the spokesman said.
According to Anna Podgornaya, director general of Pegas Touristik, there were 42 passengers, including children, inside the bus. “All the passengers were taken to local clinics, two private and two state-funded ones, for medical examination,” she said. After examination, they were taken to their hotels.
“One of the tourists stayed at hospital with suspected brain concussion,” the spokesman noted. “He is expected to stay there for three days.” The spokesman added that the tourists’ standard insurance policies were enough to cover medical costs.
