A British national and another person were killed on Tuesday and nine people were seriously injured in Montenegro when a bus plunged into a ravine, authorities said.
The bus was carrying about 30 passengers when it veered onto a steep road around noon, police said. Local media reported that the bus was traveling on a road connecting the city of Budva, on the Adriatic Sea coast, with Cetinje, which is located in a mountainous region inland.
“I was listening to music and everything was normal. Then suddenly there were screams and the sound of glass breaking,” one of the passengers told state radio RTCG.
It was not immediately clear what caused the bus to slide about 15 meters into the ravine. Pictures showed rescuers holding a metal wire to try to reach the wreckage.

Doctors said nine people have been seriously injured, one of whom is in a life-threatening condition.
Prosecutor Ana Radovanovic told reporters that the two people killed were a British national and an unidentified woman.
Police told X, formerly known as Twitter, that the two victims died at the scene while the injured received help in Cetinje. The seriously injured were later transferred to a hospital in the Montenegrin capital Podgorica.
