The accident occurred in a busy area near the Slavyansky Bulvar metro station when a large number of people were in the underpass.

Terrorism is not being considered, it is understood, but the driver was detained by police. Some unconfirmed reports said that more than 15 people were injured in the accident.

A bus in Russia's capital careened off a road on Monday and slammed into an underground passageway, killing at least four people and injuring 13 others when it crushed pedestrians in its path, Russian authorities said. The bus went off the road and onto the steps leading into the passageway.
