ALL THREE sections of the emergency services were called to the scene of a bus crash in the centre of Alicante.

Nine passengers and the driver were taken to two local hospitals suffering from a variety of light injuries.  They were aged between 23 and 60-years-old.

According to the local police investigations unit, the accident happened as the Line 9 bus was travelling along the Avenida Jijona toward the city centre when, all of a sudden and for unknown reasons, the driver lost control of his vehicle.  One of the wing mirrors hit a tree; the bus then mounted the pavement and then crashed into a palm tree before coming to a halt.
