The bus, which was transporting students and teachers of the Szinyei Merse Pál Secondary School in Budapest, as well as family members, crashed and caught fire on the Venice-Verona motorway just before midnight on Friday. The group was returning home from a ski trip. Eleven students and five adults died in the accident.
By early afternoon on Monday, four of the most seriously injured survivors of the crash had been brought back to Budapest and were taken to military Honvéd hospital, the national ambulance service said on its website.
Two other survivors, in critical condition, are being treated in hospitals in Verona, while people with light injuries are on their way back to Hungary.
