Eight killed in Czech bus crash

 

Eight Czech citizens were killed and 43 injured when the bus they were travelling in crashed into the safety fence and overturned on a motorway in central Croatia, police said.

The bus overturned on the motorway near the Krpani tunnel, at around 4:30am (local time), a police spokeswoman said.

The motorway is Croatia's main route and links capital Zagreb with the southern Adriatic city of Split. National car association HAK said traffic was diverted to local roads until further notice.
