BELGRADE, Serbia | Serbia arrests bus driver as death toll in crash rises to 7
BELGRADE, Serbia—Jan 03, 2019 —Authorities in Serbia have arrested the driver of the bus that was hit by a train last month as the number of dead in the crash has risen to seven.
Serbia’s state TV said Thursday that prosecutors have ordered a 30-day detention for the driver as soon as he is well enough to leave the hospital. He’s suspected of gravely endangering safety.
The bus was carrying mostly high school students to school when a train slammed into it near the southern city of Nis, practically cutting the bus in half.
