3 killed in Jbeil road accident

BEIRUT: Three people were killed and four wounded Wednesday when a truck collided with a passenger bus on the Jbeil-Kesrouan road, north of Beirut.

The Lebanese Red Cross said in a statement that the wounded – all in critical condition – were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

It did not give their names nor did it identify the fatalities from the morning accident near Bwar.

Separately, on Beirut's Fouad Shehab overpass, two young men were wounded after the speeding driver lost control of his car and crashed into a light pole.

The Bwar crash was the second deadliest this year.

At least nine people were killed and 29 others injured when a bus carrying Syrian families from the Aleppo countryside overturned Friday on the Damascus Highway in the town of Kahaleh, Aley.
