Three ambulance crews, firefighters and police came to the scene.
The man suspected of causing the accident was transported to the clinical hospital center KBC Zemun in handcuffs.
The GSP bus was empty at the time of the accident, after leaving the Zemun garage and about to start transporting passengers on line 15, while the private carrier bus operated on line 45.
