Ukrainian Woman Dies after Bus Crash in Bulgaria
The woman, who suffered the heaviest injuries after a Ukrainian bus transporting a group of children crashed on the Burgas-Varna road, along Bulgaria's Black Sea coast on Wednesday, has died in hospital.
The woman is 36 years old. She passed away at the hospital in the town in Varna, where she was rushed to right after the crash.
The woman, together with her husband and daughter, were sitting in the very front row of the bus, witnesses said.
Upon the clash she was literally thrown out of the bus through the front window.
The crash occurred shortly before 6 pm local time, according to the head of the Varna Police Directorate Dimitar Dimitrov.
A total of 5 children and 2 more adults were injured.
A total of 40 people, including three drivers, traveled aboard the Ukrainian bus. According to the Bulgarian police, the bus drove out of the lane, crashing into the roadside ditch.
The causes of the crash – including a suspected technical problem with the bus – are under investigation. The crash led the police to seal off the Burgas-Varna road, and to divert the traffic through an older road nearby.
