Thirty-six people were injured early Tuesday when a bus carrying mostly elderly tourists veered off a road in Budapest and plunged nearly three metres (10 feet) before crashing into the wall of building, the emergency services said.

Sixteen people suffered serious injuries, including broken bones, while 20 others were lightly injured, emergency services spokesman Pal Gyorfi told AFP.

“There were no deaths and no one is in critical condition,” Gyorfi said.

The bus was carrying 46 elderly people, according to reports. The tourists spoke Hungarian but their nationality could not immediately be confirmed. There are large ethnic Hungarian minorities in neighbouring countries as well.

The accident occurred in the southern city limits of Budapest.
