Rome, July 29 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano said on Monday that he was "deeply saddened" by the
bus crash in southern Italy that killed at least 38, possibly
39, and seriously injured 10 others overnight Sunday.
"This tragedy reminds us of the need for a more decisive
commitment to road-safety initiatives to reduce risk factors.
Maintenance and driver checks must be scrupulous...to protect
ourselves, our loved ones and others," Napolitano said.
Police are investigating the braking system and tires of
the bus carrying a group of friends that fell some 30 meters
from a viaduct.
The group was returning from a weekend excursion to the
local Telese thermal baths and the popular pilgrimage
destination of Pietralcina, home town of the Italian saint,
Padre Pio.
Police investigating said that there were no skid marks
indicating that the driver had braked.
The driver bumped into six cars before the bus slammed into
the guardrail and flew from the high viaduct, police said.
