MOSCOW, December 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Five Russian tourists injured in a road accident on Thailand's Phuket Island are being treated in hospital, press secretary of the Federal Tourism Agency Irina Shchegolkova told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“They remain under medical supervision with different injuries. None are reported to be in a grave condition,” the official said. “They are insured and are undergoing a course of treatment,” she added.
Thirteen Russians were injured on December 29 in a road accident involving a tourist bus. They were said to be clients of tourist operator Natalie Tours.
“The bus was carrying 50 people, 13 Russians were injured, two Thai citizens were reported dead," consul of the Russian embassy in the kingdom Andrey Dvornikov told Itar-Tass.
According to preliminary reports, the bus driver had lost control of the wheel, the diplomat said. Local media reported that the bus had struck a lamp post.
An upsurge in the number of road accidents is reported on the roads of Thailand ahead of the New Year holidays, attributed to local residents travelling more actively inside the country at this time.
The period from December 27 through January 2 is dubbed as "seven dangerous days" in the kingdom. For the first two days of this period, 86 people have already died in road accidents.
