BANGKOK, October 24. (Itar-Tass). — At least 21 people died and another 19 were injured in northern Thailand as a result of an accident with a bus carrying Buddhist pilgrims. This was reported by the police of Lampang province, where the accident occurred on Wednesday. Previous reports said there were 17 victims.
The police reported that on a steep mountain curve the bus crashed into a fence and fell into a deep ravine of about 50 meters. According to preliminary data, the vehicle's brakes failed. Rescuers took a long time to retrieve all the victims from the mangled bus. The work is complicated not only by the inaccessibility of the accident scene, but by darkness descended — the incident occurred at about 19:00 local time (12:00 GMT).
The police said that all the victims were women from the northern province of Chiang Mai. In this day, their organized group was visiting one of the temples in the neighboring province of Chiang Rai.
