Hellish Bus Crash in Bulgaria – the Price of Indifference

Letters to the Editor | June 15, 2011, Wednesday // 13:13| Views: | Comments: 0

I'm Russian citizen, currently living in Minsk, but my family is connected to Bulgaria. This spring I visited my mother there.

My mother lives not far from Varna, but at this time it was too expensive to take a direct flight from Minsk to Varna, so I flew to Sofia and then took a train to Varna.

When the time to go back finally came, I decided to try a bus trip from Varna to Sofia. The driver's behavior and driving style terrified me so much that I felt the necessity to write a letter to the bus company. However, I never received an answer from them. But I have to say that bus driver didn't kill us only by happy coincidence.

I have a driving license so I have some knowledge about international driving rules. Even drivers in Russia don't drive as careless as the bus driver in Bulgaria did. Can you imagine what have I felt when I read about the bus crash in Bulgaria?

According to my unhappy experience, I almost convinced that the crash was the driver's fault. After this crash happened, the fact that the company operating the bus that I took didn't even bother to answer me to my letter showed the level of indifference on this matter. The taken lives showed the price of this indifference.

I love Bulgaria very much and I'm very unhappy that Bulgarian drivers don't share my love to Bulgaria and the Bulgarian people

Faithfully yours,
Alexander Pushkarev
