UK Girl To Sue Croatian Minibus Company

One British holidaymaker is looking to sue a Croatian minibus company after a crash earlier this month injured 10 young friends.

The 10 friends, all from the UK and aged 19 and 20, suffered injuries after the minibus they were travelling in on a highway connecting Croatia’s Adriatic coast with the capital, Zagreb hit a wall and flipped onto its roof. One of the group now plans to take legal action against the minibus company after claims 8 of the group were ‘forced to travel without seatbelts’ and the driver ‘fell asleep behind the wheel’, reports Manchester Evening News.

The girls were making their way back to Zagreb for their flight back to the UK after attending a music festival in Croatia when the smash happened. One of the group remains in a Croatian hospital with a fractured spine and is expected to be flown back to the UK via air ambulance today. The 36-year-old minibus driver faces criminal charges in Croatia for his part in the crash.
