August 7, 2022 - The owner of the Polish bus which crashed with 12 fatalities in Croatia yesterday morning has been speaking to the media, reports 

"Eleven people died on the spot, and a twelfth died in the operating room. Dozens are in hospitals. I'm in shock, on tranquilizers. My life is ruined," says Jacek Antoszkiewicz, owner of the Megapol transport company whose bus had a serious accident in Croatia early yesterday morning.

Let us remind you that the accident happened yesterday around 5:40 a.m. on the A4 highway towards Zagreb, between Jarek Bisaški and Podvorec.

"The bus left on Friday at 9 a.m. from the Warszawa-Zachodnia railway station," explains Jacek Antoszkiewicz in an interview with Fakt. "There were 44 people in the vehicle, including two experienced drivers," he added. According to him, the bus was correct, it passed all technical tests, but he did not want to say whether this was the first such long route for the drivers.

"People, don't torture me. I'm shocked and on tranquilizers. My life has fallen apart. It's a terrible tragedy for me," he says in despair.

The pilgrimage was organized by the office of the Brotherhood of St. Josip. Among the pilgrims were three priests, six nuns and pilgrims from the vicinity of Konin, Sokołów and Jedlnia near Radom.
