A train collided with a bus in central Slovakia on Saturday, killing 12 people and injuring 21 others, officials said.

The collision occurred at about 9 a.m. (0800 GMT, 3 a.m. EST) Saturday at a train crossing near the town of Brezno, Health Ministry official Anton Pencer said. The victims were all passengers aboard the bus, which was carrying 35 people from the town of Banovce nad Bebravou to a nearby ski resort, he said.

Pencer said the injured were taken to nearby hospitals.

The cause of the crash was under investigation, police spokeswoman Maria Faltaniova told television news station TA3.

The two-carriage train with 15 people aboard derailed and two of its passengers sustained minor injuries, Health Ministry spokeswoman Zuzana Cizmarikova said.

Cizmarikova said the death toll was raised to 12 after rescue workers recovered one more body from the demolished bus later Saturday. She said six people were either in critical or very serious condition.

President Ivan Gasparovic expressed his sympathy for the relatives of the victims.

The government planned to declare Sunday a national day of mourning
