TEGUCIGALPA – At least 10 people were killed, including two minors, when a fire department ambulance collided with a passenger bus in northern Honduras early Friday.

At least 10 others were injured, including four passengers who were airlifted by helicopter to a hospital in San Pedro Sula, the country’s second largest city, and a woman who was reported to be trapped among the wreckage.

Moreover, five firefighters were also wounded and taken to a local hospital.


Bus company owner Alberto Garmendia told La Prensa the bus heading towards Yoro “was cut off by the fire department ambulance and, as you can see, ended up pointing in the opposite direction.”

Denis Garmendia, a family member, said “it’s regrettable that the fire fighters are in charge of … saving lives and look at what they did.”
