At least five dead after Moscow bus ploughs into underground walkway

25 December 2017

At least four people have been killed and 15 injured after a bus crashed into an underground passageway in Moscow.

A bus rammed into a group of people on Slavyansky Boulevard in Moscow on December 25. Their primary version of what happened is a technical malfunction that caused the bus to veer off the road and down the stairway.

According to the mayor of Moscow, who has arrived at the scene of the crash, two people are in critical condition as a result of the accident.

Police said both passengers and passers-by were killed when the bus plunged into an underpass in a busy part of Moscow.

The driver was detained and the authorities instituted a criminal case citing the services falling short of security requirements and encroachments on the safety regulations for public transport.
