BANGKOK, December 29, 16:41 /ITAR-TASS/. Thirteen Russian citizens were injured in a road accident, involving a tourist bus they were travelling at the Patong beach on Phuket Island in Thailand, Southeast Asia, Consul of the Russian Embassy in Thailand Andrey Dvornikov told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“The tourist bus was carrying about 50 people. Thirteen Russian citizens were injured. Two Thai citizens on the bus were reported dead. No Russian citizens were reported dead yet,” he said. The diplomat noted that, according to preliminary reports, the bus driver had lost control of the wheel. “Injured people are taken to the hospitals. The Russian Embassy is keeping the situation under control,” he added.
Local media reported that the bus with tourists had stuck in the lamp post. The logotype of the tourism company Natalie Tours is seen on the photos from the accident site, as the tourist bus had most likely belonged to this tourism company.
An upsurge of road accidents is reported on the roads in Thailand ahead of the New Year holidays. The growth in the number of road accidents is related with active travelling of local residents in the country during this period of time. The period from December 27 through January 2 is dubbed as ‘seven dangerous days’ in the Southeast Asian kingdom. For the first two days of this period of time already 86 people have died in different road accidents.
