Reports of the investigation following the German bus fire on the A9 motorway, Oberfranken, 3rd July 2017, suggest that the initial crash between the bus and a truck was caused by the bus driver’s inattention.
An electrical short-circuit in the front area of the bus then lit spilt fuel, and the bus was engulfed in flames very rapidly. 18 of the pensioners on the coach died, and another 30 were injured by the fire. The bus driver intervened to save many lives before himself dying.
