PORT-AU-PRINCE May 3 A bus crash in southwest
Haiti killed 23 people and injured 17 on Saturday, authorities
The mayor of the city of Jeremie, Ronald Etienne, told
Reuters that the cause of the accident was not known.
The accident occurred near the coastal town of Roseau, east
of Jeremie, according to media reports. Most of the dead were
from the town of d'Anse d'Hainault on the far western tip of the
southern peninsula, the reports said.
Haiti's rural road infrastructure is in poor shape though
foreign assistance after the 2010 earthquake has led to
improvements on the national two-lane highway in the southwest.
