According to the spokesmen of the regional emergency services, there were 15 passengers on the bus, including children who were returning home from school on the first day of school.
“Three crews of the ZZS Pardubice Region were immediately dispatched to the scene. On the spot, they discovered that it was three minor injuries. The paramedics subsequently transported the three patients to the hospital in Ústí nad Orlicí to the surgical department,” said the spokeswoman for the ambulance service, Alena Kisiala, adding that no child was injured.
The accident happened shortly after 11 a.m. near the village of Černovír on the road between Ústí nad Orlicí and Letohrad. “The road is passable at the moment with caution. After the accident has been registered, however, it is possible that the road will be closed again for a while before the bus and tractor can be recovered,” said police spokeswoman Dita Holečková shortly after 1 p.m.
According to the police, the cause of the accident was the carelessness of the tractor driver, who did not give way to the bus traveling on the main road from Lanšperk. Alcohol was ruled out by breath tests in both participants in the traffic accident.
