Two individuals have been killed and 60 others have been injured owing to a private bus toppling into a 100 feet precipice along the Nuwara Eliya- Walapane main road in Mahawwa Watta.

Police noted that the individuals killed owing to the accident were a woman and a youth residing in Ampara.

The bus had been transporting a group from Ampara to Nuwara Eliya on an excursion when the accident occurred, and the injured have been admitted to the Walapane divisional hospital and were later transferred to the Nuwara Eliya and Kandy general hospital.

Police suspect that the accident may have occurred owing to a break failure which resulted in the bus toppling into a precipice while taking a bend in Walapane- Mahawwa watta.
