Interior Minister Ivan Demerdzhiev announced that for now the first version of the accident is that the driver was distracted and therefore lost control of the bus.

This was stated by the Minister of Internal Affairs Ivan Demerdzhiev for the Bulgarian media.
One of the passengers who was on the bus told the BBC that they were returning from the seaside folklore festival in Belgrade.

According to her, the driver's attention was distracted by the father who wanted to sit in front because he was not feeling well. As she said, in an attempt to lower the front seat, the driver reached down and took his eyes off the road and thus unintentionally swerved to the right.

She emphasized that 10 km earlier the bus had stopped to rest and that the driver was not tired.

"One of the parents on the bus wanted to sit in the front seat next to the driver." He turned to open the seat and that's how the steering wheel turned," she told the Bulgarian portal Nova.bg.

The police are still on the ground and the investigation is ongoing. According to the Bulgarian media, there were 49 passengers on the bus who were returning to Belgrade from the folklore festival on the sea. The accident happened around 20.10 at km 216 in the direction of Sofia, not far from Stara Zagora.

Bloody children

A witness to the accident that happened today in Bulgaria, when a bus with Serbian license plates overturned, told Nova.bg that everyone who was in the emergency vehicles was conscious. However, he also saw one child and two adults, who were visibly in poor condition.

"I don't want anyone to see such a sight. "Crying children covered in blood," said Theodore, who was helping passengers from the bus.

He added that he heard one of the leaders of the children's group say that there were 48 passengers on the bus.

According to Nova.bg, many passing cars stopped, and dozens of people came to help the injured.

A doctor also helped on the way

Witnesses state that a doctor also provided first aid to the injured.

"There was a doctor who was talking about how to help the injured and who should do what. "They should build a monument to this man," said an eyewitness.

Wet pavement

Stanimir Stanev, Deputy Chief Secretary of the Ministry of Internal Affairs stated that the road was wet at the time of the accident, but he did not specify whether this had anything to do with the cause of the accident.

An eyewitness in a car traveling behind the bus told Bulgarian media that he saw the vehicle leave the lane before it overturned. The portal states that no other vehicle was involved in the accident and rollover.

Bulgarian media reports that the police officers who arrived at the scene tested the bus driver with a breathalyzer, and their reaction did not show that he was drunk, eyewitnesses said.

However, this information has not been officially confirmed or debunked either.
