A FlixBus spokesmantold Mirror Online: “Injured passengers were taken to local hospitals; those not requiring medical attention are being taken care of by local authorities.

“FlixBus is in close contact with the relevant authorities in order to determine the exact cause of the accident and to ensure all passengers receive appropriate support.”
