A bus crash killed 18 Romanian tourists and injured 29 seriously after the vehicle skidded off a main road in Montenegro.
The bus, enroute between Montenegro’s capital Podgorica and Kolasin, in the north region of the former Yugoslav republic, slid off the road around 5 p.m. yesterday and crashed about 50 meters into a gorge near the Moraca river, the government said today in an e-mailed statement.
Seven injured passengers are currently being treated in the intensive care unit of Podgorica’s Clinical Centre, four of which are in critical condition, according to a report by the Podgorica Clinical Centre. The police are still investigating the cause of the accident, it said.
