At least 20 female garment workers sustained injuries last morning when the bus that was transporting them veered off the road at Hadiwatte in Habaraduwa and crashed into a wayside tree, the Habaraduwa Police said.  
The bus was travelling from Poddala to Koggala. The injured were admitted to the Karapitiya Teaching Hospital.  

The Police said that investigations had revealed that the excessive speed at which the vehicle was being driven may have caused the bus to veer off the road.  

The driver of the bus has been taken into custody by the Habaraduwa Police.
