HAVANA, 20 March (BelTA - Xinhua) - At least 55 people were injured in a serious traffic accident outside the city of Bayamo in eastern Cuba.

The accident happened on Sunday morning when the driver of a passenger bus lost control of the vehicle and careened into several trees, as he traveled from Santiago de Cuba, the country's second largest city, to Nuevita, in the north of the island.

A great number of passengers were injured, two critically, and were taken to the Carlos Manuel de Céspedes provincial hospital for treatment.

Six children were involved, including an 18-month-old baby, and five elderly people.
