MOSCOW, January 17. /ITAR-TASS/. A plane of the Russian Emergencies Ministry is ready for possible evacuation of people injured in a bus accident from the Nizhny Novgorod Region to Moscow, a ministry official told Itar-Tass.
Aircraft of the Emergencies Ministry's Volga regional centre are also on standby, he added.
The accident occurred on the Moscow-Ufa federal highway in the Nizhny Novgorod Region at about 04:10 Moscow time (00:10 GMT) on Friday. A Mercedes bus carrying about 50 passengers on the way from Moscow to Yoshkar-Ola collided with a truck. According to the preliminary reports, two people, the drivers in both vehicles, died, and eleven passengers in the bus were injured. They were taken to a local hospital.
