  • Rescuers work near a pier after a bus carrying a group of workers plunged into the Black Sea outside the settlement of Volna in the Krasnodar region Russia

At least 16 people aboard a bus were killed when it was struck by a train in Russia's Vladimir region, 60 miles east of Moscow.

The Department of Inter-Territorial Investigations of Moscow Transportation Affairs at the Russian Investigation Committee has initiated a criminal investigation into the accident to see if there is a breach of road safety peratura.

The victims were migrant workers from Uzbekistan who were heading back to their native country, according to the Uzbek foreign ministry. "Another four were hospitalized, among them two children", the source said.

The train involved in the crash was reportedly traveling from St. Petersburg to Nizhny Novgorod.


No train passengers were injured and it was able to continue on its route hours later.

The regional interior ministry has said that all the people killed were passengers of the bus.

But the bus was shunted several hundred metres down the track, Russia's Rossiya 24 TV channel reported.

Some bus passengers managed to jump out before the collision, trying unsuccessfully to push the vehicle to safety. "At that moment the train approached and a collision occurred", he said.
