Statement from Rio 2016
Incident involving media bus on Tuesday evening
According to the driver’s report, the media transport bus left the Youth Arena in Deodoro at around 19:30 this evening, Tuesday 9 August, travelling towards Barra Olympic Park.
When on the expressway Transolímpica, near Curicica, the driver heard a noise from inside the bus which he thought was photography equipment falling down.
Immediately, he looked in the rearview mirror and noticed that the passengers were lying on the ground.
He continued to drive for a few metres until he saw a police car and stopped.
At this time, he realised that two windows on the same side of the bus were broken.
He resumed the route under the escort of the police car and the broken windows began to give way further.
After arriving at the Media Centre, he found that two passengers had minor injuries caused by broken glass cuts.
The driver will provide a statement to police this evening accompanied by a security manager of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Organising Committee.
Also this evening, the bus will be subjected to an official inspection by the police. Preliminary results will be released as they become available.
The Area Defense General Coordinator (CGDA) of the army and the military police informed that patrols are being increased in the area.
