Second metrobus accident in a month

Posted on 20 July 2012

 A metrobus crashed into a car earlier this morning in Istanbul, wounding one, daily Hürriyet reported.

The driver lost control of the metrobus for unknown reasons and drove through the barriers separating the special metrobus lane from the regular highway and crashed into a car, wounding the vehicle’s driver. Nobody on the metrobus was injured.

The road was closed to traffic and the metrobuses were reduced to a single lane.

A similar accident took place on June 19, when traffic on Istanbul’s E-5 highway came to a halt after a metrobus exited its lane and slammed into a car, causing it to flip over.
