"There were 63 people, including two bus drivers, in the long-haul bus. 16 people received moderate to severe injuries in the accident and taken to surrounding clinics," police said in a statement.
The bus company, in turn, made a statement insisting that there was no confirmed information about the number of injured passengers. The Autobahn has been closed in the direction of Berlin due to the accident.
The incident comes just a month after a similar bus crash in Belgium when at least 21 people were reportedly wounded.
