The official charges against the two defendants in the May bus accident in the "Bakadzhik" area near the city of Yambol are ready and will enter the court by December 10. The information was announced Wednesday by the Yambol Regional Prosecutor. The trial in the case, involving the death of 18 people caused by a bus careering down a mountainside called Bakadzhik Peak and plowing through a crowd of pedestrians heading to a religious festival, will, most likely, begin in January. According to earlier reports, the trial was scheduled to begin in October.
The two defendants are the owner of the carrier company, Slavi Slavov and the driver, Gospodin Gospodinov. Slavov is charged with causing death due to recklessness while Gospodinov -with violating traffic laws. The technical probe found that the bus breaks did not work properly and failed. The driver had a 0,66 blood alcohol level and had been driving too fast for the steep terrain. About 50 people are expected to take the witness stand.
