National Day of Mourning in Bulgaria
By decision of the Council of Ministers, today is declared a day of national mourning for the victims of the severe crash on Trakia motorway.
The government expresses its condolences to the relatives of the dead. In their memory, the national flags of all state institutions will be halved.
The severe crash, which occurred minutes after 11 am on the fatal Friday 13th, took the lives of six people. More than 20 people are injured in several metropolitan hospitals, four of them in poor condition. The crash occurred in the region of Vakarel, 27 km away from Trakia motorway.
The reason for it was a contact between two vehicles - a bus that runs a regular course from Bourgas to Sofia owned by Union Ivkoni and a Renault car, run by a 40-year-old woman traveling alone in the car. The bus moved on a normal lane at a speed of not more than 95-96 km per hour when the lightweight automobile struck it sideways. The crash happened on a straight section of the Trakia highway under normal road conditions, says BGNews.
