Moscow bus crashes into pedestrian passageway, killing 4

The bus in Moscow

The bus veered off the road and plunged into a crowded underground walkway at around 14:50 on Monday, killing four people and leaving another eleven injured.

According to the source, there are two main reasons for the crash: either the bus or another vehicle cut it off or the brakes on the bus failed, while a terrorist act is not considered as the possible cause for the accident.

Passengers on-board and people walking on the steps near the Slavyansky Boulevard metro station were killed, police said.
