Bus crash in Russia kills thirteen people including two children

Thirteen people, which included two children, were killed in a major accident between a long-haul passenger bus and a truck in Russia on Sunday.

Travelling from Samara on the Volga river to Izhevsk around 900 kilometres (550 miles) east of Moscow, the driver was possibly blinded by the headlights, said the investigative committee that probes accidents and disasters.
