Driver killed as mini bus swerves to avoid rabbit

A 22-year-old man from the Austrian Weinviertel was killed when he was involved in a head on collision with a mini bus which was trying to avoid hitting a rabbit yesterday (Thursday).

The mini bus driver saw the rabbit and swerved onto the other side of the road to avoid hitting it, but was involved in a head on collision with the car in Hausleiten, Korneuburg.

The 22-year-old died at the scene.

The driver of the mini-bus was a 37-year-old from Vienna's Favoriten district.

After being hit head on by the minibus the car veered off the road before coming to a standstill in a nearby field.

The mini bus was flipped onto its side in the road.

The mini bus driver was taken in a serious condition to hospital in St Pölten, Lower Austria.

A passenger in the car also suffered serious injuries in the accident.
