On Wednesday morning, at least one person died and 37 people were injured when a two-tiered tourist bus overturned on a highway near the town of Monteriggioni in central Tuscany.
Following the accident, a total of 33 people, with reportedly moderate injuries, were taken to two local hospitals. The 40-year-old woman working as a guide on the bus died in the accident.
The driver of a tourist bus Leonardo Santoro, 35, was arrested on Wednesday at the scene of the incident. The investigation dismissed, however, any intent in the actions of Santoro.
According to local media, during questioning, investigators came to the conclusion that the tragedy had occurred when the driver was distracted. Santoro was trying to set up his radio tuner while driving and was distracted from the situation on the road. He has tested negative for alcohol.
