Among the three victims two children, now they are in intensive care. The driver was arrested. The most likely cause of the accident is called brake failure.

A terrible accident occurred at the bus station Mytishchi right at the crosswalk. There is always busy traffic, lots of buses and pedestrians, so this place specifically caused the layout and put up warning signs.

The time of arrival of the bus at pedestrians recorded camera surveillance. The footage shows how people quietly walked along the Zebra. Suddenly a yellow bus, not slowing down, crashed into the pedestrians. Injured three people, including two children.
