In Haiti, a bus plowed into a crowd during a festival — killing at least 38 people and injuring 13 in a hit-and-run incident.
The bus was on its way to the capital city Port Au Prince — which streets were crowded with people celebrating the Rara festival. Apparently the bus hit two people on the street, but continued on for several miles, struck a group of musicians, and continued on to hit a second and third group of musicians.
The driver ran away from the scene. Witnesses said they could see bodies still trapped under the bus. Terrible. Angry people flocked around the bus and tried to set it on fire, but police stopped them. The driver has not yet been caught — police are still looking for him.
The Haitian president said he was deeply saddened by the terrible accident.
