HAVANA, May 14 (Xinhua) — A passenger bus fell off a cliff in eastern

Cuba on Monday, killing five people, including a little girl, and

wounding several others, the national police force (PNR) said.

The accident occurred when the vehicle overturned on a slope in the town

of Rafael Freyre, Holguin province, 735 km east of Havana, PNR officer

Juan Carlos Fonseca told Cuban news media.

A team of experts was trying to determine the cause of the accident, he

said, adding that the victims died on the spot.

Road accidents are the fifth leading cause of deaths in Cuba, which

reported 10,553 accidents in 2011, or 1,126 more than in 2010.

Drunken Driving and general recklessness among both drivers and

pedestrians are the main causes of accidents in Cuba, where legislators

are proposing more severe sanctions against these violations.
