A bus belonging to the Hatton depot plunged 30 feet when its brakes gave way in the Hatton Dayagama area yesterday.

Three persons in critical condition were transferred to the Peradeniya Teaching Hospital while 28 persons sustained injuries. The bus driver said the mishap occurred when he had applied brakes to give way to two three wheelers plying at high speed. A three-month-old infant inside the bus was unharmed miraculously in this accident.
