Warsaw: Polish police say that a bus travelling from Ukraine to Warsaw has crashed, killing five people and injuring more than two dozen others.

Police spokesman Marek Kapusta said today that the driver probably fell asleep behind the wheel, causing the bus to cross into the opposite lane before landing in a ditch and hitting a tree near the village of Gorzno-Kolonia, about 75 kilometres southeast of Warsaw.

Kapusta said the passengers were probably all Ukrainian.

He said that three people were instantly killed and another two died in a hospital, while 25 other people, including 2 children, remain hospitalised.
