    Default Major accident Bavaro - 40 tourists injured some serious

    https://almomento.net/mas-de-20-turi...aje-de-higuey/

    Don't open if you don't like the sight of blood. Most of the injured are Russian tourists. Their 70 seater coach was hit from behind by a truck.

    Wonderful way to bring tourist back into the country
    for high season. There isn't enough land available on
    this island to bury all of the idiots who are allowed to
    drive heavy equipment on the highways. Unfortunately
    these reckless fools don't have any natural predators.
    I doubt any of these rescue operators or hospital staff
    speak fluent Russian either. Welcome to Wonderland baby.

    I have lived in the DR a long time. I am used to all the delays, lies etc. no problem however I get really pi**ed off with the Gov for their corruption when it comes to how they "dont' deal" with the transport sindico (MAFIOSO). How many lives will they take before basic road laws are enforced against these punks??? Motherfuc*er will be back on the road driving tomorrow.
    What is the best example of the "blind leading the blind" in the DR?????

    Four (4) major bus accidents with tourists over the past 11 years. Four times the same company involved (Monumental). They used to be called FL Tours before the most tragic accident in 2008. They changed their name to Monumental soon after. Under Monumental brand, this is the third major bus accident for them.

    They are pleading for translators in hospitals in Higuey. Anyone with Russian Spanish please contact authorities there.

    Something needs to be done about the driving that goes on in this country. I've been all around the world and this is top three of the worst driving I've ever seen. Hopefully no one is seriously injured
