Bus carrying Hungarian students burst into flames on Italian highway, many were killed


A physical education teacher, who suffered severe burns, returned to the bus several times to save other passengers and all of the survivors were “well taken care of” with nobody suffering life-threatening conditions. The injured were in a Verona hospital and twelve other passengers, who were “well”, were staying in a hotel south of the city. The bus had left France around 1630-1700 CET and the two drivers had a shift change approximately an hour before the accident took place, shortly before midnight. Both drivers were Hungarian. The bus was from German company Setra, had a capacity to seat up to 59 people, was in good condition and the drivers were experienced. Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni called Orban in the morning to express his condolences.
