Health Minister Richard Raši met his Croatian counterpart Darko Milinovic on September 8 to discuss the health care and transport options for Slovak citizens injured in the fatal bus crash that occurred near the Croatian town of Gospic on September 7, the TASR newswire was told by the Health Ministry's press department.

The transport of the Slovak citizens who suffered injuries in the accident to their home country will be closely coordinated with the Slovak embassy in Croatia. People have been assigned to all three hospitals caring for the Slovak patients (in Zagreb, Gospic and Rijeka), Milinovic said.

Raši also expressed his deep sorrow over the tragedy, which claimed the lives of 14 passengers and left more than 20 people injured. On September 7, he began organising the transport of the injured to individual clinics of the Louis Pasteur Faculty Hospital in Košice. Raši was also due on September 8 to visit all the seriously-injured people who are still in Croatian hospitals. The bus, which left Košice at 6.00 p.m. on September 6 and was heading for the Adriatic Sea, went off the road near Gospic at around 6 a.m. the next morning. It crashed through roadside barriers before colliding into a concrete pillar. TASR
