Six injured in A22 motorway bus crash

Six people were injured in a bus accident on the A22 motorway in the Algarve this Tuesday morning.

The accident happened at kilometre 36 in Alcantarilha (Silves) in the direction of Faro-Lagos at around 10am, a source from the Algarve’s Civil Protection authority told Lusa news agency. The cause of the crash, which does not appear to have involved any other vehicle, is still unclear.

Emergency responders stabilised the injured passengers on-site before taking them to the hospital. It has not been revealed how badly the passengers were hurt.

The bus passengers who were unharmed were taken away from the crash site in other vehicles.

The crash caused traffic delays on the motorway as traffic was restricted to one lane.
