Re: Tourist Bus Crash-Marmaris

Some of the Bends on the Bodrum to BJV can be deceptive. I often see trucks wandering away from staying in correct lane going round those bends.Came across a guy waving to us frantically approaching one of those bends about 3 years ago .I came round the bend to be confronted with a Dolmus on its side .Always a worry on these high mountain type bendy roads.

Re: Tourist Bus Crash-Marmaris

If you scroll down to the end of the article there is a video showing the accident as it happens. Seemed to be going very fast, but that maybe due to not having any brakes.

Re: Tourist Bus Crash-Marmaris

The driver of the bus, his wife and daughter were among the dead. One of the survivors has been reported to have said he was shouting "No Brakes"
