DVD theory dismissed by bus crash investigators

Prosecutor Olivier Elsig cast doubt on reports that the driver had been busy loading a DVD player just before the crash.

He said: "A dozen interviews with surviving children have been carried out, without any information provided pointing to a cause or causes of the accident.

"Regarding the theory of inattention due to a DVD being inserted, none of the those heard saw the driver doing anything like this."

Investigators have established that no other vehicle was involved, that the bus was not speeding, that the driver had not drunk alcohol, and he had not had a heart attack.
