Yet another fatal crash involving a bus in Antalya (Akseki), this time, injuring 1 and killing 5 members of the same family in the car that hit the bus

The bus driver claims the car came into the oncoming lane and he couldn't get out of the way.

Thanks for the link :thumbup Ill get google translate and the job and have a read through :)

I saw this picture yesterday of an overcrowded public bus that squeezed in a couple more people by leaving the doors open and having them ride on the step! Insane! So lucky they weren't injured or worse.
