A horrific accident between a train and a bus was captured on a motorist’s dashcam in Russia, as their vehicle safely waited on the opposite side of the tracks.
The Mirror Online reports that while the driver of the bus survived the incident, five people sitting in the rear of the coach were killed, including a 10-year-old girl.
“It was a nightmare,” said Alexei Kalinko, the motorist who documented the collision. “The bus was lumbering too slowly across, the train was slamming on its brakes and sounding its horn, but it was obvious it was never going to stop in time. Wreckage was strewn everywhere, the bus tipped over and destroyed. There were terrible screams from within the bus of the wounded passengers.”
Aside from those who lost their lives after the driver attempted to beat the train, 13 other victims were taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
The dead have been confirmed as Anastacia Sergeeva, 25, Valentina Klimenchuk, 40, Tatyana Yurishina, 45, Alexander Filipov, 33, and 10-year-old Dasha Yustinya.
