Second accident involving MTCC bus occurs days after fatal accident

A second accident has occurred in Hulhumale' city due to a bus driver falling asleep at the wheel.

The accident occurred on Thursday evening near Valhomas Cafe' on Nirolhu Magu in the reclaimed suburb. The accident involved an MTCC bus and a motorcycle.

The police revealed that it is believed that the accident was caused due to the bus driver falling asleep at the wheel. Both the bus and the motorcycle were damaged to varying degrees.

Last Monday, an MTCC bus ran over a Ukrainian tourist fatally killing her. The unfortunate incident occurred due to the driver falling asleep at the wheel. While the driver has been arrested, MTCC has claimed that they do not overwork their drivers, although it is likely that tiredness may be a factor that causes drowsiness while on duty.
