34 killed as bus crashes into crowd in Haiti

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.

Then, according to Haiti's Civil Protection Agency, the bus driver crashed into three "rara" parades in a town about three miles away.

"The bus, the passengers and the driver were all placed into the care of the local authorities".

The driver has not been identified and the cause of either crash has yet to be revealed.
