The nephew of the Director-General of UNESCO, Bulgarian Irina Bokova, has died in a monstrous car crash, which also claimed the life of his wife.

Georgi Bokov, 39, and his wife, 37, died after clashing headlong into a bus, carrying Ukranian tourists near the village of Emona, between the coastal towns of Varna and Burgas.

The couple died upon the impact, while eleven tourists suffered light injuries and were rushed in to the hospital in Varna.

Bokov, who was behind the wheel of an Audi A5, is believed to have caused the crash after deciding on a hazardous overtaking. The car then crashed headlong into the bus and was literally smashed by it, leaving no chance for the two people inside.

Georgi Bokov has been best known in Bulgaria as the son of former member of parliament and current Ambassador to Slovenia, Socialist Filip Bokov, as well as for his criminal record, which featured mostly car thefts and arms possession.

He carried the name of his grandfather, Georgi Bokov, who edited the country's leading Communist newspaper

His aunt Irina Bokova, 57, defeated in September 2009, Egyptian Culture Minister Farouk Hosny after a suspenseful and drawn-out race, sealing victory in the fifth round of balloting at UNESCO Paris headquarters.

You can read about HELLISH crashes on a daily rate. Hazardous overtaking are taking place every second in this country. It's a wonder that there are not more accidents like that. To name them hellish isn't adequate, it's sad insane normality in this country.
More highways with separate lanes would help to decrease these kind of accidents.

Best,
Taro
