No less than 18 people have been declared missing after a bus collided with a truck in the Bavarian town of Stammbach in southern Germany, before bursting into flames police say.
The unaccounted victims after the bus crash are believed to have died as fire engulfed the vehicle, police said.
“Thirty passengers were taken to hospitals, some with serious injuries. The others are believed to have died in the burning tour bus,” which had been carrying 48 people, police said in a statement.
A German minister said that 11 bodies had been retrieved from the crash site so far.
Moments after the incident, as many as 200 emergency workers were deployed to the site, including fire fighters, rescue workers and police, while south-bound traffic on the motorway remained blocked.
