At least five people died and 26 others were injured in a bus accident in central Turkey, media outlets reported on Saturday.

Officials took the wounded people to nearby hospitals as they suffered severe injuries.

Reports revealed the incident took place between the settlements of Aksaray and Konya as the tourist bus went off the road and overturned.

“The embassy has not received any appeals from Russian citizens in connection with the accident,” the Russian embassy in Turkey said.

Last September, a collision between a freight train and a minibus in northwest Turkey killed six people and injured six others.

Turkish news agency Demiroren reported that the crash at a railroad crossing in Ergene, Tekirdag province, involved a minibus carrying factory workers and a train headed to nearby Cerkezkoy at 8 a.m. local time (0500 GMT).

The six people who died were in the minibus, which was dragged in front of the train after the impact. Images showed the crumpled vehicle lying on its roof alongside the train tracks.
