Czech bus crashed in Austria

A Czech tourist bus on its way to Croatia crashed on the A9 motorway in south-east Austria in the early hours of Saturday after it went off the road and hit the side bank. Four passengers were seriously injured and were taken to a nearby hospital; another 14 people suffered light injuries. Other passengers were picked up by another bus and continued their trip. The authorities believe the accident was caused by the driver of the bus who probably fell asleep behind the wheel.
