An uncontrolled journey by a public bus led to a serious traffic accident in Heidelberg on Wednesday. According to the Baden-Württemberg police in Mannheim, 18 people were injured when the bus collided with a wall and a house facade. At least one occupant was seriously injured.

The driver of the articulated bus left the vehicle at around 1:45 p.m. due to a defect in one of the rear entrance doors.

Meanwhile, the vehicle started moving for initially unknown reasons and, after driving a few meters without a driver, crashed first into a wall and then into the facade of a property.

Eight injured people were taken to nearby hospitals. The seriously injured passenger was flown to a clinic in a rescue helicopter.
