Public Prosecutor Sasho Rajcev at today’s press conference said that the Public Prosecutor’s Office Skopje will seek detention order against them and be given precautionary measures.
“The expert report shows that the main cause of the accident was the malfunctioning braking device and higher driving speed above permissible limit, resulting in the loss of control over the bus. The driver drove 99 km/h, and the allowed speed is 80 km/h,” Rajchev said. He added that the expert report showed that the driver did not use a mobile phone while driving.
Seven people, including the owner of the bus company Durmo Tours and the bus driver were detained.
The accident occured on the Skopje-Tetovo highway on Feb. 13, killing 15 people and injuring 39 others.
