A 59 year old Spanish coach driver has been charged with reckless endangerment by French prosecutors after his vehicle had its roof sliced off under a low bridge in France last Sunday morning.

28 people were injured, four of them seriously, with the incident happening close to La Madeleine, in the Lille region. The coach was carrying students from Bilbao to Amsterdam.

There were 59 passengers on board, along with the two drivers, who were cleared of any drink-driving at the scene.
