A spokesman for a crisis management centre said the death toll could rise.

Fifty-four Ukrainian nationals, adults and children, were on board the bus from Lviv to Vienna when it crashed, the IAR news agency reported.

About 18 of them were injured, nine seriously. All surviving passengers were taken to hospital.

According to a photojournalist from the PAP news agency, the bus veered off the road at a "bend of death", crashing into a barrier and a wooden cross which marked previous fatal road accidents at the exact same site. (vb)
