An excursion bus with 22 British tourists aboard left one badly injured when it overturned onto its side around half past ten this morning in Arguayoda, in La Gomer’a Alajeró area. Emergency services say that the worst affected are a 70-year-old man with head and upper arm injuries, and a 67-year-old woman with back injuries. Others are being treated for light injuries. Bomberos of Valle Gran Rey have secured the vehicle, and the Guardia Civil are dealing with the inident and regulating the traffic disruption caused by the incident, which blocked the road entirely.

From the picture it seems very lucky the bus didn't topple over the edge!

it was lucky, but it was a gentle slope rather than the precipice the DM is reporting ... :whistle: :D

Brake failure is the likeliest candidate, but not confirmed yet.
