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.”
