Four people were injured in a severe accident on the road Ruse-Byala. Two vans crashed at a turn in the road and the accident caused the road to be closed for traffic.
The accident took place at a turn in the road at 9 km from Rousse where overtaking is not allowed. The freight van was driving from Veliko Turnovo, while the passenger van was travelling from Ruse to Byala. For reasons that are still unclear, one of the drivers entered the wrong lane and a frontal crash occurred.
Three ambulances, police and fire-truck were sent to the site. Four people suffered injuries during the accident – two on each vehicle. As the drivers were stuck in the vehicles, the firemen had to cut the cars in order to remove them. The alcohol tests were both negative. The injured are aged between 28 and 54. They were sent to hospital with a number of injuries but without life-threatening ones.
The accident caused long lines of waiting freight vehicles to form.
