Four foreigners received minor injuries after a head-on collision between two cars and a bicycle near Taungbi village in Bagan, Myanmar, on November 29.
Jordan, a 74-year-old man from Germany, was driving a white Toyata Hilux compact pickup truck from Old Bagan to Nyaung U where he collided with a tourist car driven by a local driver. He also hit a bicycle, and a tree.
Both car drivers did not receive any injury while the British couple from the tourist car escaped with only a few bruises. The 42-year-old Italian tourist, who was riding the bicycle, was also fortunate enough that he received only minor injuries.
The case is now under investigation by the local police.
