Yambol Coach Crash - Heads Begin To Roll

After the National day of mourning yesterday and the sombre weekend starts and heads are beginning to roll. The coach owner is now being prosecuted, but in Bulgaria is common that documents that say a vehicle is safe has not been checked. I got my car document that states it passed its roadworthiness only last week - The car wasn’t touched! The coach owner could have been any one of hundreds of vehicle owners in Bulgaria; it was just his coach whose brakes failed with fatalities.
