Serious road accident at Playa de la Arena

Update 6pm: As Phil posted in the comments below, the crash was between a taxi and a bus. Six were injured, five not seriously, but one was gravely hurt. All six were transferred to hospital, three to Hospiten Sur and three to Hospital Costa Adeje.

Original post:  Trafico is reporting in the last half hour (around 1 o’clock) a bad traffic accident at the entrance to Playa de la Arena. Bare reports right now, but a bus seems to have been involved, and there are casualties, some foreigners, being attended to on the ground. Details later as they come.
