KRASNODAR, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - Five bus passengers, among them an eight-year-old child, died in a bus-and-truck collision in Krasnodar Territory on the night from Wednesday to Thursday on the "Kavkaz" (Caucasus) Federal Highway. A regular-service bus Mercedes collided with a GAZ-53 truck riding ahead of it, an officer in the press service of the regional department of the Interior Ministry told Itar-Tass.
"Another seven people were rushed to the local Central Regional Hospital," the officer pointed out.
The incident happened at 02:40 on Thursday in the Gulkevichi District.
"There were 15 people, all residents of Armenia, in the bus which was riding along a Sochi-Yerevan route via Rostov-on-Don," the police officer specified.
The bus driver explained that he was "blinded by the headlights of an oncoming car", in view of which he belatedly noticed the truck ahead and had no time to stop despite a low speed.
Investigators and personnel of the road patrol service and the Emergencies Ministry are at work at the site.
