It was on December 23, 2005 that a tourist bus overturned in São Vicente, causing five deaths and three very serious injuries, including a baby of nine months, becoming one of the most tragic road accidents of which there is memory, in Madeira.

Between this disaster and what happened this afternoon, in Caniço , they are about 13 years and four months apart, having similar contours as to its outcome: a rollover, dozens of injured and several mortal victims to mourn.

The most serious was in 1984 at Rua Pedro José de Ornelas, in Funchal

In 1984, a public service bus, descending the steep Rua Pedro José de Ornelas in Funchal, and due to a problem in the brakes, was hit against a tree, causing more than a dozen dead and several injured.
