22 dead in road accident in Haiti

Twenty-two people were killed late Friday in a road accident in northern Haiti when a truck carrying pilgrims plunged into a ravine, hospital sources said.

Another 30 people travelling in the truck had been injured, some of them seriously, said a doctor at the hospital treating them.

"We have counted 21 people dead at the site of the accident," Doctor Rosny from the town of Saint-Marc located about 100 kilometers (67 miles) north of the capital told AFP by telephone.
