A bus crashed on the motorway in Berlin, Germany, resulting in the death of 5 people.

According to the details, a bus from Berlin, Germany to Zurich, Switzerland slid off the A9 motorway, and as a result several people were injured.

Police in the state of Saxony said on social media platform X that several people were injured in the incident on the A9 motorway near Leipzig at 9:45am on Wednesday.

The A9 is a major north-south motorway connecting the German capital Munich. It was closed in both directions after the accident.
