Relatives of bus crash victims head to Germany
BERLIN — Relatives of Polish tourists involved in a bus crash in which 13 people were killed and 29 injured are on their way to Berlin to try to find out the fate of their loved ones.
Polish Foreign Ministry spokesman Marcin Bosacki said Monday that the 100 or so relatives will be meeting with police, consular officials and psychologists. Polish officials say most of those on their way know nothing about the condition of their relatives.
The tour bus was on its way back to Poland from Spain when it crashed on a highway outside Berlin Sunday after police say a merging car hit it, causing it to hit a bridge abutment.
Chancellor Angela Merkel says she has pledged that Germany will do whatever it can to help those who were injured.
