Transport Malta launches an investigation on bus fire accident

Following an accident that occurred earlier this afternoon when a bus caught fire in St. Paul’s Bay, Transport Malta has launched an independent investigation.

The investigation will try to determine the cause of the accident and will help Transport Malta come up with recommendations to help avoid future similar accidents.

The Authority thanks the driver who, according to preliminary reports, acted swiftly and followed emergency procedures, thus avoiding further repercussions from the accident.  Transport Malta is glad that all passengers managed to alight the bus before the fire spread to avoid injuries. 

Finally the Authority thanks the Civil Protection Department for their intervention and all those who have been somehow affected by the accident.
