A bus carrying eight Libyan citizens collided with a fuel truck on the coastal road west of Sirte, causing the death of the bus driver after the bus rolled then set on fire.

The eight passengers sustained moderate to serious injuries while the fuel truck rolled onto the middle of the road without setting on fire.

Medical and fire services were on the scene and transported the wounded to Ibn Sina Hospital in Sirte.

Traffic was returned to normal on the coastal road after it was cleaned from any remnants of the accident by the Public Utilities for Cleaning, Water and Sanitation Company.
