The BBC and several news outlets are reporting that a bus carrying schoolchildren, mainly boys, aged between 14 and 18 has crashed and caught fire in northern Italy, killing at least 16 people and injuring at least 39.
Emergency officials are quoted as saying “the bus, carrying pupils from Hungary, collided with a roadside column as it exited the A4 motorway near Verona late on Friday.”
The bus was returning to Budapest from France, where the pupils had been on a mountain holiday.
Reports say a number of the pupils, who were mainly boys aged between 14 and 18, were thrown out of the vehicle when it collided with the pylon.
