Bus crashes into Moscow subway killing four people

Nine remain in hospitals after bus ploughs into Moscow pedestrian underpass

CCTV footage from the scene posted on social media showed a bus veering off the road and plunging down the steps of a pedestrian underpass.

A bus has driven into a pedestrian underpass in the center of Moscow, killing at least 5 and injuring 15 others, a source in the emergency services told Sputnik.

The Interior Ministry's Moscow division said in a statement that considered causes of the incident include "failure of the driver to control the vehicle or a malfunction of the vehicle".

"According to preliminary information, a bus drove into the underground passage at the metro station Slavyansky Bulvar", the source said.

Moscow police said passengers and pedestrians were among those killed in Monday's crash.

Sirens were blaring around the metro station, with authorities preparing to pull the bus out of the underpass with a cable, an AFP correspondent at the scene said.

Monday was a working day in Russian Federation because Orthodox Christmas is celebrated on January 7, according to Reuters.

Ten ambulances, fire brigade officials, and three medivac helicopters were on the scene, agencies reported.

Mayor of the capital, Sergei Sobyanin, took to Twitter to express his condolences to the families and friends of the victim.
