A bus crash in Samoa has caused serious injuries to ten passengers, with several others suffering minor injuries.

The accident happened on a road where many families of Lepa and Saleapaga villages have been relocated after last year's tsunami.

Sources who saw the accident told local radio stations the vehicle had problems with its brakes and hit a rock.

Last November, a bus accident near Solo claimed eight lives and left 20 others injured.
