Austria Bus Coach Crash: 1 Fatality, 20 Injured

A bus traveling in Austria on Tuesday veered off the road and overturned, resulting in one fatality and injuring 20 passengers, as reported by Austria’s APA agency.

The incident occurred near the village of Micheldorf in Carinthia state, central Austria. The bus was en route from Berlin, Germany, via Linz, Austria, to Trieste, Italy, according to Austrian broadcaster ORF.

Passengers onboard the double-decker bus hailed from Austria, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, and Ukraine, according to APA.

The victim was identified as a 19-year-old Austrian.

Most of the injured individuals were transported to a hospital in Friesach, with one seriously injured passenger, a 25-year-old German woman, being transferred to a hospital in Klagenfurt.

Three individuals required hydraulic equipment to be extricated from the vehicle, while others were assisted out of the overturned bus using ladders, according to APA.
