Court sentences driver of crashed bus with one month detention

The District Court in Slavonski Brod decided to sentence the driver of the bus that crashed in Croatia leaving ten people dead and 40 others injured, to one month in detention.

The Deputy State Attorney, Kopunic District, said the reason for the detention was prevention from escaping from Croatia.
 
"The investigating judge ordered detention for one month, due to the eventual possibility of leaving the Republic of Croatia, so, escape. He will now be sent to prison. Today he only made the statement about the detention, he did not give any evidence," he said.
 
The driver's lawyer stated that his client never said he dozed off during the accident.
 
Later on, it was reported that the driver was once again brought in front of the court, this time to participate in the hearing of the testimonies of the survived passengers.
