All people down here have been in shock today, as this evening around 7:30 there was a freak accident up north that involved a truck full of plywood, a bus carrying highscool students and 3 cars. 22 16 year old children and a teacher are already dead, several others are severely wounded. They were on a field trip.
This is the freakiest accident ever in Greece and the whole nation is in mourning … the pictures from the scene of the accident i can not even begin to describe.
The only online reference to the accident i could find at the moment was the one in cnn but it is to vague, still not enough info i guess. The conditions under which the accident happened are not yet known, but it seems the truck went off its track towards the bus.
This is just plainly stupid … we are the country with the most fatal casualties in car accidents/year in Europe, if not in the whole world … it just makes me angry.
