    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - A tourist bus of the FlixBus company with over 60 people from 22 countries on board traveling from Sweden to Berlin got in a car crash near the northern German city of Rostock leaving 16 people injured, local police said Friday.

    "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.
