Overflowing rivers, 50 traffic accidents and an overtuned bus were results of the Thursday afternoon heavy rains
Overflowing rivers, 50 traffic accidents and an overtuned bus were results of the Thursday afternoon heavy rains

QCOSTARICA- It was a Thursday afternoon of overflowing rivers and some 50 traffic accidents, that included a overtuned bus, in two hours of rain. And drivers not slowing down.

In downtown Heredia, in the area of the bridge over the Pirro river, rainy conditions was the cause of a bus (from the video going a little too fast) skidding out of control and landing on its side. Eight people suffered injuries, attended to by paramedics and fortunately no deaths to mourn.

All around the Greater Metropolitan Area (GAM) there were reports of rivers overflowing their banks, in some areas causing temporary flooding, in others alarming residents of the raging waters.

Traffic conditions all around the GAM this afternoon were worse than usual, with some 50 accidents blocking traffic and keeping an understaffed traffic police force busy.

Mario Calderon, head of the Policia de Transito, is calling on drivers to be caution and be patient on the roads to prevent more accidents during the rains.
