Ukrainian tourist killed in Maldives - media

A Ukrainian tourist was killed in a bus accident in the Maldives last week, Maldives Independent has reported.

"A Ukrainian tourist was killed Monday morning [on May 6] after she was run over by a bus in the capital’s suburb Hulhumalé," the report said.

The accident occurred near the Fuel Supply station when the 31-year-old woman was out walking with a Maldivian friend, according to media reports. Both women ran when they saw the bus out of control and headed towards them, but the Ukrainian woman's feet got stuck on the side of the road and the bus ran over her, veered off the road and crashed into the bushes.

None of the passengers on the bus were injured.

The Maldivian bus driver, who most likely fell asleep, has since been taken into custody.
