Out of control bus hits pedestrians in Sweden, one reported dead

One man has died in a bus accident after a burst heating pipe caused near boiling water to flood streets in Lund in southern Sweden on Friday evening. A further seven people were left nursing injuries. Large quantities of hot water gushed out of the burst pipe onto Sankt Laurentiigatan in the centre of the university city at around 6pm on Friday evening. According to the emergency services the source of the leak was a fractured district heating pipe. The water caused a cloud of hot steam and which cloaked the street, reducing visibility to a minimum. "Units have reported almost zero visibility," said Nils Norling at Skane police. Police were informed about the bus accident at around 7.15pm. A witness reported how the bus lurched down the street out of control with sparks flying from underneath, apparently from a mangled bicycle. More info and pictures here
