At least 34 people were killed and 17 injured in northern Haiti late on Saturday after a bus crashed into a parade of pedestrians, the country's civil protection authorities said on Sunday. Drivers in Haiti who are involved in accidents rarely stop at the scene because they fear attack by local mobs seeking to extract vigilante justice.
A further 13 pedestrians were injured as the coach sped away from the scene of the initial accident, in which the vehicle hit two pedestrians, killing one, AFP reports.
The bus was traveling from Cap Haitien to the capital Port-au-Prince, Reuters reported.
