No one was killed in the accident, although 26 people, including pedestrians, suffered injuries of various degree. "My vision went dark all of a sudden and I lost control of the steering wheel," the driver later said.

The people on the sidewalk managed to escape from the bus, although some of them, who were walking on a hot summer night on Nevsky Prospekt, did not manage to react properly. There were many passengers inside the bus, all the seats were taken, about 8-9 people were standing.

The driver suffered bone fractures of the legs. He was hospitalized in severe condition. Twenty-six people - both passengers and pedestrians, including children,  - suffered injuries. Eighteen people, four of them minors, received medical aid on the spot and refused from hospitalization.
