6 Killed in Dagestani Bus Crash

A bus crash in Dagestan early Thursday killed six people and injured 15, including 11 who were hospitalized, and local police have opened a criminal case, RIA-Novosti reported.

The bus drove into oncoming traffic and collided with a truck at about 2 a.m. on route from Moscow to the local capital, Makhachkala. Both drivers were among the dead and the case would likely be closed soon, a local Interior Ministry official told the agency.

The Transportation Ministry told Interfax that the bus owner was unlicensed. A St. Petersburg bus crashed into a bus station Wednesday, killing two and injuring 10.  (MT)
