A group of students from the Sabaragamuwa University, were injured in a road accident which occurred on the Bandarawela – Haputale road, on Sunday morning.

The collision occurred near the Oththakade Level Crossing on the Bandarawela – Haputale road.

A bus carrying a group of students from Bandarawela to the Sabaragamuwa University, had collided with a container truck headed in the opposite direction. Twenty seven students were admitted to the Diyathalawa Hospital while two of them were later transferred to the Badulla General Hospital due to the severity of their injuries.

The location in question has been the scene of many road accidents in recent years. The Bandarawela Police noted that this section of road is treacherous, due to a short bend near the level crossing.
