According to the source, there are two main reasons for the crash: either the bus or another auto cut it off or the brakes on the bus failed, while a terrorist act is not considered as the possible cause for the accident. However, it is believed that the tragedy occurred either because of a auto accident with the participation of another vehicle or a technical failure of the bus. The driver of the bus has been detained.

The incident occurred shortly before 3 p.m. local time (1200 GMT/UTC) on one of Moscow's busiest streets near the Slavyansky Boulevard metro station.
