Bus crash kills two, injures 10

Two people have been killed and 10 others injured after two buses collided in the Volgograd region of southern Russia.

The buses collided about 140 kilometers from the region's capital, Volgograd.

RIA Novosti news agency reported that a bus with two drivers, but no passengers, on board collided head-on with another bus that was carrying 59 people.

The driver of the latter vehicle died on the spot, while 8 passengers were taken to hospital. One of the passengers later died of trauma in the hospital.

A criminal case has been launched on charges of violating road rules which led to two or more deaths.
