Wedding friends killed in Hunter Valley bus crash, driver charged

A tragic accident in the Hunter Valley wine region, north of Sydney, has left at least ten folks useless and 15 others hospitalised. The victims had been coming back from a wedding celebration at a winery on Sunday night when their bus overturned close to the town of Greta. Fortune have charged the 58-year-old driver with ten counts of dangerous driving resulting in death and have refused him bail. The newlyweds were not on the bus on the time of the crash.
The crash website in New South Wales stays an energetic crime scene, with police commissioner Karen Webb stating that forensic officers, crash investigation unit officers, and rescue officers are all current. The accident happened round eleven:30pm local time on Sunday, with heavy fog reported in the space. The bus rolled over while navigating a roundabout off a highway.
Acting assistant commissioner Tracy Chapman stated the wedding friends have been travelling to Singleton, presumably for his or her accommodation. Two survivors have been airlifted from the crash, with local media reporting that a minimal of one stays in critical situation. Some of the injured passengers are being handled at John Hunter Hospital, while others have been flown to Sydney.
Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese expressed his sorrow on the tragic occasion, stating that it’s “so cruel, so sad and so unfair” for a “joyous day in a wonderful place like that to end with such terrible loss of life”. New South Wales Premier Chris Minns called the loss of so many lives “nothing wanting heartbreaking”, including that “for this horrific crash to have occurred on a day that should have been full of love and happiness solely provides to the heartbreak.”
