Two killed as bus carrying Juventus fans crashes
Two people were killed and several injured Tuesday when a bus carrying fans of Italian football club Juventus crashed in Italy's north-western Alpine region, police said, according to dpa.
Rescuers had to cut through the vehicle's twisted wreckage to release the bodies of the victims, while ambulances took an unspecified number of injured to a hospital in nearby Aosta, Carabinieri police officer, Vincenzo Puzzo, told television news channel, SKY TG24.
Puzzo said the fans were travelling from Neuchatel, Switzerland to Turin where Juventus was to host Real Madrid in a European Champions League match later Tuesday.
It was not immediately clear what caused the accident, but the ANSA news agency reported witnesses saying the bus was travelling downhill at high speed when it veered off the road and collided into a building.
