ZAGREB, 6 August, 2022 - Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković on Saturday talked on the telephone with his Polish counterpart Mateusz Morawiecki following a bus crash in northern Croatia in which 12 Polish nationals were killed, extending his condolences to the victims' families.

Twelve people were killed and more than 40 were injured in the accident, which occurred at 5.40 am on Saturday on the A4 highway in the direction of Zagreb when a bus with Polish licence plates, carrying pilgrims to the Marian shrine of Međugorje, Bosnia and Herzegovina, skidded off the road on the highway section between Jarek Bisaški and Podvorec, in Varaždin County.

"I have extended my his condolences to the victims' families on behalf of the Government and informed the Polish prime minister that competent services are on the ground and that the injured passengers are being treated," Plenković said in a Twitter post.
