Earlier today 17 people died in a bus crash, in Dubai. The driver accidentally ran into an overhead roadsign, killing more than half of the 31 passengers.
Among the 17 dead, 12 were Indian Nationals, and were flown home to be buried in their native land. Except for 1 who was buried in the UAE.
The Driver survived, with somewhat minor injuries. But that may not be as well for him as you might think, because he may have to pay 200,000 AED (Roughly 55,000 USD) Per victim. With a bus driver’s salary, and him being 50 years old he may be working to pay off that debt for the rest of his life.
An investigation is being launched to discover any other causes of tha accident.
