The moment of the accident was seen by the driver who followed the tourist bus and he confirmed the fact of the problem with the wheel.

Firefighters, numerous ambulances, gendarmerie and road brigades were sent to the scene. As a result of the accident, 12 German tourists and the driver were injured. One German, stuck in the car, was taken out by firefighters. The wounded were taken to hospitals in Manavgat. Experts will determine the causes of the burst tire. Investigation ongoing.
